You know, they grow up so fast.
One minute they’re loud, demanding toddlers totally dependent on you, the next they’re young people on the verge of teendom, with a sense of humour, a desire for independence – and a wicked personality.
And I wonder just how many of the features he has now will travel with him through to adulthood?
As I was taking this photo for my ‘Faces’ theme, I say ‘Dan, give me a handsome yet grown up smile’.
Still think he’s handsome mind you . . .
This post for for week 79 of The Gallery: Faces.
If you’re new and want to know what The Gallery is, go and read here, and then come right back and join in!
You can also pick up The Gallery code if you want too.
And don’t forget, there is a most fabulous prize up for grabs this week – a Kodak Pulse Digital Frame, worth £164.99. I have one and it’s brilliant. BRILLIANT I tell you.
This 10-inch touchscreen frame has it’s own custom email address so you can easily send any new photos you take directly to it. No faffing around with memory cards or dongles or installing software.
It stores up to 4,000 pictures with 512MB of internal memory and you can even set up ‘playlists’ of your favourite photos.
You can buy one for grandma who lives 100 miles away, set it all up for her and when you get a new photo of her grandkids, you just email it across and it appears on her Kodak frame. You can even email it across when you’re out and about.
I think it’s positively genius.
I have a guest judge to help me decide on a winner; the very lovely Paula at Battling On who can be bribed with gin, chocolate or holidays in the sun I’m told.
Now go forth and show some big blog love. This virtual gallery of photographs is about enjoying each other’s work, so go make someone’s day.
