Had to find some time to load another capture.

This frame was shot last Saturday whilst on a week-end break at the Weston Hotel (during which I bagged 180 raw captures ... to be uploaded in due course and time permitting).

This capture depicts a close up of my son; Nicky. I wanted to emphasise the eyes ... the look and thoughts that such innocent eyes portray in this modern 'cruel' age devoid of true values .....

May God bless & protect all our kids ....

Thank you for viewing and as always larger is better.

Hello Bert.
Great portrait picture of your handsome looking son.
I will have a look out of the Plane window, during our stop at Malta airport, on our way to Sicily. Around 21.00pm at 9 May. Pity it will be dark by than.
it is our son's bithday who lives on Sicily. We only stay for one week, this time.
Ciao, Jan.

Bert,

I was nearly first to comment on this, but just as I was about to press the vote button, the phone rang. This is the first chance I have had to come back to it. I was pleased to see that I guessed it was yours from the thumbnail! The light that you capture is unmistakable. Very poignant narrative, excellent work as always!

Bert I have to admire your unorthodox style. I would have never dreamt such a crop presentation. I works in all respects prosit! 10 marks for the pic plus 20 marks for the dictum!
