52 Week Challenge: Week 8

In His Eyes

This photo was nearly impossible to take! Even though my son was sitting down, when you get that close, any minor movement completely throws the focus. And for the same reason, I couldn't use a tripod, so I had to hold the camera as steadily as possible. As if that's not frustrating enough, my camera has been acting up lately, and it doesn't always take a picture when I ask it to!

I've always loved my son's eyes, though, so I was pretty determined to get a good picture before he grew up and his eyes matured. In fact, I've been working on the concept for months. I'm pretty happy with this one, but I may try it again later with a different lens.

Flickr is definitely bringing out the camera geek in me! :)


  1. That is an amazing photo! You are really talented (both in your photography skills, but in getting a toddler to hold real still!!)

  2. A gorgeous & unique image. You are such a talent at all you do!!

  3. Thank you both, although I can't take credit for getting a toddler to sit still! I'll have to thank PBS Kids for that. :)
