Winning Image #2

I got my second competition point Wednesday night. It's a black and white competition, with the theme "Emotions." Many of the prints were literal interpretations of the theme, but others were not. As a landscape print featuring a storm rolling in was presented for judging, I heard another club member whisper, "That's a stretch." The clouds took second place.

This picture was taken when Henry was 18-days-old. He had horrible baby acne and looked pretty pathetic. For the competition you have to name the print, so it is now titled "Pathos." The presentation at camera club was given by a club member who happens to be a neurosurgeon/anatomist specializing in the eye (but I don't know why he's not an opthamologist then, but anyway). The lecture was all about how the eye works and our perceptions of things. Did you know we all see colors a little bit differently?

It's hard to believe Henry was just 18 days old when the photo was taken. He looks much more mature. But he's always had those old-soul eyes. Love, Toots
