Mother and Child

This photo has been a favoured one since I took it, but I’ve never shared it because I had always thought that the focus was soft and might be detracting to some viewers, but the composition, the light and the processing were all just right for me.

This was taken on Chinese New Year’s day 2013, it is my sister-in-law, Romina, and her son (my nephew) Nathan.

I don’t normally do portraits, but I usually make exceptions for family, this, on the other hand, was more of a candid photo rather than a posed portrait.



2012 Deck – Week 16

By The Manatee Pond

I’ve been staring at this photo for weeks, and finding the right words to accompany it in the blog seems to be hard…

It’s a great spot, it has the Kissing Bridge, popular with brides and lovers, photographers and kids who like to run over it back and forth.  The pond has the manatees, where kids come to feed them on afternoons, there are little spots where families picnic and relax, and it’s where budding artists sit and sketch simply because there is so much of interest around.

Does it have too much?  is the photo crowded?  Am I just being hard on myself?  Who knows….  but this is the photo for Week 16  🙂
