Congratulations, if the new Grandson is as obliging and photogenic as this young man you are truly blessed.

Not at all boring, Maria. Kids make great subjects.
Best wishes,

Rarely give advice but I'd like to see more of your grandson as he grows. Not sure he will sit still for it (ugh!) The smooth foreground right is perfect. All images in this series have been thoughtful and wonderfully produced. Thanks tg

Your photographs are never boring Maria, and this one is beautiful. There is a slight softness about his left foot which gives the impression that he's swinging it which I love. Typical of small childhood. Congratulations on the new arrival too, I look forward to seeing the images. Sally

Lovely natural pose Maria, a child lost in his own thoughts. Another for the family album I'm sure

Thank you all for your lovely comments

As all have said above re: 'boring'. We are our own worst critics and feel obliged to say 'sorry.' Your work is experimental and all a joy to see in the result offered from your close application to achieving something special. How many curved Brandt portrait studies do you see in black and white with the same subject matter but with such diverse/profound results in actuality? They are so, so special. Same with your work. You seek more each time.

Grandson? I have had my Grandaughter visit over the weekend last week (lives a long way away) so I am pleased in your new found joy. Little treasures that bring so much happiness into our lives. Feeling down in the dumps or tired from overwork. They laugh or smile and the world simply changes. Congrats, you are blessed.
