Storytelling Sunday 2 ~ Thirteen

I really wanted to share a Jubilee themed story today, but alas I cannot find a single photo of our Silver Jubilee celebrations back in 1977.

There was a celebration of a different kind in our house last month.

                                             Thirteen candles

P1010891

                                                    One wish

These are the only two pictures I managed to take. You have to be quick to catch her unawares these days. No second chance to get a sharper shot, the blur will have to do. Better to have that, than no photo at all.

I’m linking up with Sian today and everyone else who has a story to share.

The blur is actually quite spectacular and very emotive ... your second shot is sensational! Happy Birthday to the thirteen year old!

I hear you on the 'take what you get' these days - I turned the camera's noises off so they can't hear it :lol: Happy Birthday to your teenager :)

Sian said...

Wonderful pictures to put a smile on any face this morning! A very Happy Birthday to the birthday girl :)

Abi said...

Happy birthday to her. I too like the blurred shot, very cool.

Great shots that capture the moment and personality. You have to grab what you can. Or else raid her camera memory card as if she's anything like mine they take loads with friends :0)
I'm hoping to join later when I get the photos from my Mum - we are still looking!

I quite like the blur, it gives movement to the photo! My little girl is only 4 months old, but every time she sees the camera she stops smiling because she's curious about what we're holding in front of her!

Lynn said...

Wonder what she wished for - hope she had a great day!

Lisa said...

Great pics Fi, cake looks fab too xx

Beverly said...

I love the facial expression and hands in the second photo. I hope she (and you) enjoy this first year of being a teen :)

Jennifer Grace said...

These are great shots, blur doesn't matter too much when you're capturing the stuff of life, does it! Happy birthday to her! x

furrypig said...

my teenage DD is a nightmare to get photos of yet happily takes hundreds of her own when she if with her friends! Well done on capturing these 2!

S said...

Now there is some serious wishing going on. Great photo! At 13 they are rarely still long enough for a perfectly focused shot.

humel said...

Blurry pics are definitely better than no pics at all :) And they help to capture the personality of a busy child, too! Belated birthday greetings to her from the Melsh contingent xx

Becky said...

Excellent photos - they obviously capture her as she is at 13 xx Happy birthday!

Super photographs that speak volumes about being thirteen and how she will appreciate them when she is older. A true moment in time captured so beautifully by you.

Karen said...

Happy 13th to your DD and a blurred shot is better than no shot at all.

Sandra said...

Goodness ... 13, wow, when did that happen.

Wishing the birthday girl a very very happy birthday xx

Gail said...

That blurred shot is really neat! Belated Happy Birthday to her.

Melissa said...

Great photos - the look on her face in that second one is fabulous!

Ginger said...

I quite like both photos :) Happy Belated Birthday!
