My Muse

I'm not much of a photographer, but I do enjoy my second-hand DSLR and charming subjects like my only favorite nephew.  Since my sister thinks an iphone is camera enough, and Lincoln tends to avoid looking anything like himself in pictures, capturing his little personality is a fun challenge.  Don't you just love the red locks, dimples and slight gap in the front teeth?  I'm entering this very unprofessional photo in a little contest for less-than-professionals over at my bloggy friend Nancy's Ordinary Miracles and the Crazy 8.  Yes, eight.  That's six kiddos: four bio, two adopted from Vietnam, and they're in the process of becoming foster-certified.  All that and she manages to maintain a fun blog with stunning photographs.  There are still a few days left to enter if you want to throw your hat in the ring!

OK... a strange coincidence! I just did some pics of my nephew and am working on a post. He has these lovely red locks too and looks around the same age. Odd coincidence as I just read the comment before mine too!
But on to the business at hand... this is a GREAT SHOT! The lighting looks good! You done good!
Thank you for participating,
