Taken at the aquarium, my eldest was mesmerised by the Gentoo penguins. I took this photo hoping to capture how perfect her reflection was in the glass of the exhibit. What I love though is that the reflected image could almost be a window into her two year old mind, showing the scene that had so fascinated her.

I didn’t really expect my trusty ol’ iPhone 7 to do the shot justice at the time. I was wrong, the photograph even came up well in a modestly sized print.

I love this photograph – the suddenly empty exhibition, the shadows, the way The Boy is transfixed by the diprotodon skeleton, the way it looks like its about to pounce on him…
there’s something very Stranger Things-esque about it.
