    hello guys,

    there is a photo, and it was taken in the morning

    and I want to write above of that photos 2 sentences

    the night before... / one night before... / a night before...
    the morning after / a morning after
    (the photo)


    I'm not sure if using the word "before" and "after" is true in the first place .

    please if you can correct me , I want to refer for the night before taking the photo and for the morning when the photos was taken

    thanks

    Re: "night before" or " a night before" or "the night before"

    I am not sure what you are trying to say. (Perhaps: "This photo was taken the night before the morning after?")

    And ignore that suggestion. Somebody is just trying to be funny.

    (BTW, how did you find this site? (Curious.))

    the night before... / one night before... / a night before...
    the morning after / a morning after

    (The photo will go here)


    I'm not sure if using the word "before" and "after" is true correct. in the first place .

    Please if you can correct me if necessary. I want to refer for to the night before taking the photo and for to the morning when the photos photo was taken.

    Thanks.
    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections in red.

    I don't understand why you want to write two captions if you are only going to show one photo. It would make sense if you wrote "The night before ..." and then showed a photo taken at night, and then wrote "The morning after ..." followed by a photo taken in the morning.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You needed "It's" (capital letter and apostrophe) there.

    Re: "night before" or " a night before" or "the night before"

    teacher, thank you so much,

    thanks for correcting me , my English is so much the basic,

    I hope this site will do the job.


    I'm making a memoir book for my friend and I put in it a photograph which remind us of the begging of our relationship'

    and every thing started at the night before the photograph '

    so "the night before" is actually the memoir book itself and "the morning after" is the photograph and 2 year after

    I'm at the title of the book , still there is a lot to be done

    I don't know how the night before can be the book. In any case, I didn't know what to change the last part of the text to, so I left it unchanged. (You don't have to come up with a title before you write the book. You can do that any time. In fact, when I write a poem I usually come up with the title last.)
