Model Answer 1 for IELTS Cue Card 2:
As I am interested in photography, I have taken thousands of photos. However, the most meaningful photograph to me is the big one of my family. The picture is hung on the wall of my living room and it is the first thing that everyone notices since the moment they walk into my house.
The photograph was taken one year ago on an occasion of summer holiday. It was the first time that my family enjoyed the summer vacation together. We decided to go on a trip to Sam Son beach which is one of the most popular destinations for summer holiday in my country.
The photo was probably the first picture of my whole family with my parents, my older brother, my little sister and me. It is such a brilliant photo, with every one standing on the beach and smiling. The one behind the camera was a professional photographer who has a great eye for photography. You can even see the crystal clear water sparkling under the sunlight and the seashore in the background. It was a scorching hot day, and the sky was blue with no clouds, making it a perfect scene to take a photo.
The photo is very special to me. Whenever I feel unhappy, just looking at the picture cheers me up right away. I believe that no matter what happens, my parents and my siblings will always stand by me and support me.
Model Answer 2
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 thousands times and still I look at it with a delight and sadness. The photograph is a black-and-white one and later I have enlarged it and framed it in my living room. My grandparents and 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 feelings as my grandfather and mother are no longer with us. In the picture they seems so lively but I can’t be with them anymore! This photograph is probably is my most favourite one as it conveys my grandparents’ memory and depicts a happy family. Every time I look at this particular picture, it gives a different sensation – 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.
