Each week our chief photographer, Anita Ross Marshall, picks her favourite shot from the archives. She writes:

You should always be on the lookout for moments in a person’s timeline that are simple, yet telling. Do not make the mistake of thinking the ordinary has nothing to offer your camera.

The “extraordinary” can come in many forms. It does not have to be loud, big or complex to work. There is beauty in the simple, the calm and the quiet - that has a strength all of its own.
