Tristan recently turned 1

Tristan is a cute guy on the go. He's a hiccup away from walking on his own and he is drooling his way to brand new, pearly, teeth. He's at the pointing stage where the world is his puzzle to solve. Uptown had the honor of capturing this special celebration. Of course, since he is my adorable nephew, like it or not, I will document his life. Hope he likes his photo taken!

I think he's a little like the 1917 Uncle Sam campaign.

Lesson Learned

I realize that I learn best by making mistakes but sometimes it just feels painful. I was really excited about this harbor image taken in multiple exposures, with fisheye, then stitched together with Photoshop. In my head it worked and it was going to be cool. On screen it just didn't. I'm confident that my disappointment will lead to focusing on shooting what I need next time. But alas chances of getting the harbor with cool clouds when I live six hours away will be tough and I might have to make the pano of perhaps our river in Autumn colors. Sigh... I guess I learned to get beyond crawling and that seems an infinitely more complex a challenge especially at age 1.
