Sample Answer 1:
Like many other families in my country, I have a big photograph of my family which is hung on the wall of my living room. It is the first thing that you notice when you walk in the room.
This photo was taken a year ago on the occasion of my cousin‟s wedding. It was the first time for ages that my whole family had gathered together. Even my relatives who are living further away came home to attend the wedding. It was possibly the first picture of my extended family with my grandmother, all of my grandmother‟s children and the in-laws, and I have lost count of how many grandchildren are in it. It‟s a brilliant photo, with everyone smiling and laughing, taken by a professional photographer who put everyone at their ease.
As a typical traditional person, I treasure my family. Our ties are worth more than gold. No matter what happens, I strongly believe that my parents, my siblings and relatives will always be on my side supporting me. Every time I look at the photograph of my loving family, I feel blessed and proud.

The photograph that was taken, when I was only 4-5 years old with my parents, grandfather and grandmother, is one of my very favourite photographs. I do not have clear memory regarding the event when the photograph was taken but I have seen it a thousand times and still, I look at it with delight and sadness. The photograph is a black-and-white one and later I have enlarged it and framed it in my living room. The small kid (me), the grandparents and young parents make the picture a really significant one to me. I look with amazement into the picture and sometimes can’t believe I was so small and different looking at that time The picture gives me a gloomy feeling as my grandfather and mother are no longer with us. In the picture, they look so lovely but I can’t be with them anymore!
I was wearing a full sleeve shirt, full pant and a pair of red shoes. In the picture, I was in the middle and was sitting in a chair. Others were standing around me – my parents are on the right and my grandparents are on the left. My father was very stylish and was wearing fashionable dresses in the picture. My grandfather had spectacles in his eyes and had his hair back-brushed. My mother and grandmother were wearing traditional dresses but both looked so fresh and happy in the picture.
This photograph is probably is my most favourite one ass it conveys my grandparents’ memory and depicts a happy family. Every time I look at this particular picture, it gives a different sensation – a mixture of happiness and sadness. This is a priceless possession to me and I would like to keep it with me for the rest of my life.

There was a time when photos were only taken by regular point-and-shoot cameras but now everything has changed. With the help of mobile phones and computers, people are taking billions of photos every day from all parts of the world. I, myself, take so many pictures that I sometimes forget which photograph I took and when I took it. There is this one photograph I like the most. It’s just beautiful…
In this photograph, I am carrying my niece and she is smiling up at me. I first saw the photograph about a week ago. I didn’t even know the photograph existed until my sister showed it to me. I liked it so much that I made it the wallpaper background of my computer. Now, whenever I open the lip of my laptop, the first thing I see is that picture.
The photo shows happiness. I think it was taken four years ago and shows how time has passed, how the world changes. After looking at the photograph, I remembered that my niece was crying a lot and my sister was about to give her to the nanny. At that moment I decided to step in and hold her. Once I had her in my arms she got happy and smiled. At that perfect moment, the photograph was taken. The picture shows a time when I was happy. It also shows at times when we all used to have an optimistic outlook towards the world but now all optimism and love has just vanished from my life.
The photograph was taken when I was only 4 years old. I was with my parents and grandparents & it’s one of my very favourite pictures ever. I do not have clear memory regarding the event when the photograph was taken but I have seen it a thousand times. To this day I still look at it with delight and sadness. I had it enlarged and framed; it hangs in the living room where everyone can see the black and white. The small kid (me), the grandparents and young parents make the picture a really significant one to me. I look with amazement at the picture and sometimes I can’t believe I was so small and different looking at that time. The picture gives me a sense of melancholy since my grandfather & grandmother are no longer with us. In the picture, they seem so lively and animated but I can’t be with them anymore!

Some people have “photographic” faces – faces that attract everybody’s attention – but I don’t. So, choosing a favourite photograph of mine, with me in it, is indeed a challenge for me. But, I will still go ahead and talk about a picture which, I think, is one of my favourites for some reasons. I will explain in a minute why.
The photograph was taken about 4/5 years ago at a formal dinner party after my university graduation ceremony. On that night, all of my university friends were busy taking one picture after another and enjoying the night, so I also decided to do the same and started to take my pictures by forgetting about my “not-so” photographic face for a while.
I am not sure exactly how many pictures of mine were taken on that night, but I would assume, it must have been quite a few, as our graduation party had continued for a while, keeping ourselves busy with singing, playing music and enjoying different snacks, one after another. Anyway, once we were done with the party, our picture films were taken to a local photo studio the next day to process them and get their final version. Anyway, when I finally got to see my own pictures, most of them were looking “less than average” except just one. The picture indeed reflected my celebratory mood of that night, with a very happy and glowing face of me.
Standing next to me in that picture were a few friends of mine who were splattering water. The picture was taken in front of a very nice background that had some nicely trimmed trees and perfect lighting.
Anyway, this is one of my favourite pictures because it brings back some of the most special and beautiful memories – memories like spending my last night as a student with the rest of my friends and recording my first song ever – which I will cherish for the rest of my life. This is one of my most favourite pictures also because, in this very picture, I look to be in my “natural” self.
