Recently I had the pleasure of visiting with some family members in Maine. This young fellow is my grand nephew, Leo, age 3. I had to look up in Wikipedia what you call your nephew’s son and – yes – the answer is grand nephew.
Leo is three years old and he is a grand fellow indeed. What a joy it was to spend three days with him. These pictures were taken in the late afternoon on a cloudy day, so the light is soft and subtle and the colors are quite muted.
For those of you who are technically inclined, I shot these images with the lens pretty wide open – F5. So, the depth of field is very narrow – in some cases just one eye is in focus. Shooting at this aperture blurs out the background – just what we wanted to do.
Stay tuned for pictures later this week of Leo’s sister, Maisie – a grand niece if ever there was one!
