A new life

by Annie Hylands

Every Friday, Darren invites someone to become ‘Guest Editor’ for the day to choose and discuss three or four images that have not been previously published on the website.  Today’s Guest Editor is Annie Hylands, our first non-photographer editor.  Annie lives with her three children and hopefully we’ll be seeing her soon on Come Dine With Me.  You can follow Annie on Twitter

This, to me, is a picture of hope. New life is a time for hope, and looking to the future.
As a mother I feel a bit worried that the egg is on the cold ground and all alone, but I hope the straw around the egg means that it is in a nest.  I hope that its mother is nearby, and just about to sit back down on the egg to keep it nice and warm.
