My grandfather was a pretty good photographer. He died a couple of months ago and one of the things he left behind were mounds of pictures he had taken over the years. Images of places he'd seen and people he'd met over the years. He had pictures hanging all over his home and 3 of his favorites were 3 Rockwell prints.
As a children's photographer I have access, thankfully, to lots of cute kids! Here's a little 7 year old who agreed to help me out today. Thanks Little D. My image today is a tribute of sorts to my grandfather and his love of art, specifically of Norman Rockwell's work.
Lesson: Cherish family and live each day being fully present. The photography lesson: Pay attention to details. I wanted the little boys backwards baseball cap to show up more, but he was cold so I didn't want to keep trying to get a perfect shot. I could have climbed higher on the ladder, but I didn't think of that at the time! I was cold too! :-)
