Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.


Ez and I headed down the the Botanical Gardens the other day to re-enact that scene from The Sound of Music where Julie Andrews runs down the hill spinning before gunning down the Waffen-SS squad sent to ship her off to Sobidor sing a merry tune.

Thus I have two images for the price of one. Above, I've gone for the full CinemaScope vibe, with a fair bit of post-production work. Below is the more straightforward shot. The question I ask is, which do you like?

Is this a trick question? Number two of course. I get closer to my grandson, thank you.
Thank you also for today. These children of yours are fantastic.

Le naturel l'un...bien sûr.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens,
Ezra and Henry doing different things,
These are a few of my favorite things.....

I like the first one purely for cinematic reasons and the second one for personal reasons (as Roddy puts it), we feel closer to Ez in the second shot.

What do I have to do cut and paste the letters LOL (and the exclamation points) and constantly post them on your blog?)...LOL!!!!

By the way, I have to agree with your father and Yamini, when it comes to the photographs.
Thanks, for sharing!
DeeDee ;-D

Roddy, BAH!

Sue, good work there.

Kris said...

Yamini, he needs an I-Max.

DeeDee, cut and paste never did no harm.
