Model Answer 1:

Introduction:
Well, photographs are taken to preserve our memories for a long time, and young children are especially curious to get photographed. I have a few albums full of my childhood photographs, but the one that I really don’t like is a group photograph taken at school. Since it is the only memory of my primary school, I can’t even think of throwing it away. However, there are numerous reasons why I really don’t like this click at all.

When it was taken?
I vividly remember I was in grade fourth when this photograph was taken at our school. The school announced a day prior to come to school in coloured clothes. Unfortunately, I was on leave because of illness, so in this picture, each and every student is beautifully dressed ups in their favourite outfits, and I was the only one wearing the regular school uniform, which is quite embarrassing.

What are you doing in it? and Why you do not like?
In addition, just like 10 minutes before the shoot, I had a fight with my friend for some reason, during which we pulled each other hair, and one can see my completely messed up hair. This is not all, I’m the only one in this photograph with closed eyes as I blinked at the wrong time. Last but not least, my nose is running as I was suffering from a cold, which makes this photograph extremely disgusting. In fact, everyone make a lot of fun of me at school, which I can’t forget.

Conclusion:
Overall, it is the one photograph that I really don’t like.

Model Answer 2:

Introduction:
I think photography is the best way to save our good and bad memories. Nowadays we all have smart phones. We use it to make videos and to click pictures. Today, I would like to talk about one of the childhood photos that I do not like.

When it was taken?
As I said earlier, with the help of advanced technology, it become easy to click pictures anywhere at any time, but if we talk about a few decades ago it was not a common trend to click many pictures. When I was a child, I remember my parents always went to the photo studio to click pictures.

What are you doing in it?
One day, my father decided to take on a family picture. After school, my family and I went to a photo studio located 5 kilometres away from our house. We all had taken one by one single photo from the photographer. There was a toy car in the room. I and my brother both wanted to play with it. Both of us were fighting for that toy car when the photographer clicked the photo at the same time.

Why you do not like?
I don’t like that picture at all. Because in that picture my hair was scattered and my face was full of anger.

Conclusion:
So that is my childhood photo which I don’t like.
