Model Answer:
I have always enjoyed standing in front of a camera and taking a picture of myself. In fact, at one point in my life, I became so passionate about taking pictures that I even bought an expensive camera by selling a lot of my “personal” pieces of stuff. But, that’s a different story altogether, so I will just go ahead and talk about one of my favourite pictures instead - which I took with that camera.

This particular picture, I am talking about, was taken at a wedding ceremony of one of my female cousins about 2/3 years ago. Now, before I go to talk about the picture, I should tell you a little about my cousin who was very much like an elder sister to me. So, her marriage indeed was a very special occasion for me, especially, because we shared a very special bond.

I remember taking quite a few pictures at that wedding ceremony but the picture, I am talking about here, was a special one because it was taken at a rather emotional moment for my cousin. In fact, it was taken at a time when my cousin, a new bride, was crying like a little baby as she was leaving her parents’ house to start a new life and family. 

Now, I am not too sure how the other members of my family were feeling about the grand departure of my cousin at the time of taking that picture, but as far as I am concerned, I felt like I was losing a part of me since that special lady had treated me all along just like her own younger brother – a brother she never had. 

Anyway, it is one of my favourite pictures as it had come as natural as one possibly could get. Besides, the picture was also a “mysterious” one in that I never quite figure out if those “tears” of my cousin were the “tears of joy” (of starting a new life) or the “tears of separation” from her own families – families which had raised her and loved her unconditionally.
