It’s the Great North Run day today, and this story, which has featured heavily in the sentiment of the day, and the desire to help others, really caught my attention, so I thought I would include it here. Hope you get some motivation to help others from it.
I love this poem.
“Smile” is a poem by the late, great Spike Milligan that promotes the positivity of smiling.
But was it actually penned by the comedy legend at all? There are lots of websites attributing Spike as author, but I have also heard it might have been originally written by Karen McLendon-Laumann.
With both people being linked as authors, I’ll mention both in this post, but whoever actually came up with this beauty, it’s a great gift to the world.
We could all do with smiling more, that is for sure. the science is pointing to the health benefits of feeling more positive. You can’t help feeling better when you’re smiling.
So does that lead on to the possibility that having a photoshoot is actually good for your mental health? I’d like to think so.
We are in the business of making people smile, and in return it makes us feel better, so please come and join in the fun at Mike Turner Photography, we have lots of photoshoot experiences to enjoy.
Check them out here.

Quote graphics are very popular on social media, so we have been playing about with spreading the love with our JOY, LOVE, PEACE, HAPPINESS, graphic, layered onto a head shot image, along with a personal quotation. We think it is a great personalised Facebook cover image.
We are more than happy to provide one free of charge for your social media channnels, if you contact us via Facebook or Instagram.
If you would like to have one printed as a piece of framed art, then give us a shout, obviously there would be a charge for this sort of thing because of the cost, but let us know what you would like and we’ll give you a quotation.
And it even works well for the fellas
