From 1 January until 31 December 2009 I did an SP every day for JPG's 365 Days photo challenge. On this particular day Emma had asked if I'd read her a book before bed and I said, "Yes, but first I'd like to take a photo with you." I hadn't taken my 365 Day shot yet. I got some empty beer bottles, set the camera on the TV table with the timer on, and told her to look at the camera.
