The calendar says fall, but it still feels like summer here and I’m not complaining a bit. We got in what was probably the best beach trip yet on the first day of autumn, and if this keeps up we’ll still be swimming into October!
Which means I can still haul out the remainder of summer photos I have yet to post, so consider this summer photo week. Also, this takes the place of “embarrassing pictures of Anna” from the Face Behind the Blog tag Christina gave me, because I still haven’t done any scanning.
So enjoy this taste of summer—outside and here on the computer. Today I give you young William, not to be confused with the William at my house who spent the weekend wearing strands of shiny, glittery mardi gras beads and asking me, “Mom, am I pretty?”
This William lives next door, and I shot these on the eve of his second birthday—if you can believe it—he looks wise beyond his years, don’t you think? And I like the first one for my Best Shot Monday.
I would have preferred to shoot it vertically, but we went outside and he gave me that great look before I even had the camera up to my face, so I just snapped it before that expression disappeared! I didn’t have time to turn the camera. Funny how those kinds of shots can sometimes be the best ones. Head over to Picture This for more Monday photos!
Photoshop users: I shot these accidentally at ISO 800 because I had been inside and forgot to turn it down when we went outside—holy grain and noise! His skin looks really weird on the Web. What to do—isn’t there some kind of noise-remover/plug-in for PS?
