Being the photographer at an event for older people is always fun. Older people are as concerned about how they look in a photograph as anyone else, but it’s more about whether they’re smiling enough, not just vanity!
In a rich place like Richmond it’s easy to forget that are still people in need. The Richmond Charities is a charity based in the London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames with its origins dating back to 1600. The charity aim to provide housing to elderly residents who are in need of an improvement in their living conditions. They have several lovely Almhouses in the Borough and from time to time hold Afternoon Tea in the gardens.
