IELTS Speaking topic: A picture in your family

Describe a picture or photograph in your family.
You should say:
what is in the picture
where this picture is in your home
how this picture was taken
and explain why you think this picture is meaningful.

I am really into the photography, and I have taken thousands of pictures of both the landscape and my son. But in my album there is one picture that is very meaningful to me. Actually it is picture of me, and I put it on the desk in my bedroom.

This photo was taken by my son to be honest, when we went out hiking in a forest park in the rural area of Beijing in the autumn. It was a really wonderful day with the blue sky and white cloud, and it’s neither too cold nor too hot in the park, and more importantly, the foliage of the trees had turned yellow or red, making the mountains really gorgeous. I asked him to pose for me with the colourful scenery along the path, and I took lots of pictures of him. Finally he asked me to give him the camera to take a photo of me, and I agreed because I thought he would probably be a little fan of photography due to my influence.

The photo of me he took was very good, it’s very clear, not blurred at all. I’m really proud of him. It is a really precious record. Every time I see the photo, it reminds me the moment we got together to enjoy ourselves in the park.
