IELTS Letter to a friend after a trip for a photograph


Dear Sameer,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I still remember the last trip we had last May to the jungles of Gir with our families.

Body Paragraph 1 about sending a photograph

En route, we clicked numerous photographs of wild, but one of them, which was the highlight of the endeavour, was that of 10 lions together in the wee hours of the morning. Lions in India are rarefied, and so, the photograph you clicked is a rare gem. I would be thrilled to receive a raw copy of it.

Body Paragraph 2 about the need for the photograph

I think this click will suit my son Rohan’s latest science project on wildlife for the tenth standard. Firstly, the photograph captures the beast in its full glory, and secondly, the original work rather than just plagiarism will elevate the quality of his project.

Body Paragraph 3 about your copy of the photograph

The hardcopy shared with Rohan was misplaced in his school-bus. Even after multiple searches in school, the bus and at home, we could not recover it. Moreover, I still have a copy of it on my WhatsApp; however, it is far from impressive to print it in the project.

End Paragraph

I hope you find some time from your busy schedule to dispatch the raw copy as already mentioned. Call me if needed. See you at Suresh’s housewarming party next week. Thanks.

Warm regards,
