My Grandson, aged 10 months , and the reason for my recent absence from the site, as I travelled stateside to see him.
Taken in the local park on the swings, not an easy capture for me as I was doing the pushing as well as trying to catch him on the upswing while moving.
Not the best image admittedly, but one that means a lot to me. The pure joy found in the simple things in life.

V2 taken inside with Nikor 35mm f/1.8 lens @ F1.8

For Finley who makes the world special just by being in it.
Love Nana xx

Perfect title for this one! He looks to be having a great time with his Nana.
V2 is absolutely delightful too Chant. He has beautiful blue eyes that would melt any heart!
A very very minor thing.. but I may have been tempted to clone out the little white patch on his top? just a thought, love as is Smile

Two wonderful pics. Two just has the edge for me. He is gorgeous with those deep blue eys and such long eyelashes. All the girls will just swoon for him. Drawn like bees to the honey pot for his good handsome looks.
That enigmatic smile on pic one is certainly something else.

Great captures all round Chant. Good camera work too, as you were also multitasking with pushing too lol

Very well done.

Fabulous, what a little star. I too love No2, those chubby cheeks to die for. Not to mention his gorgeous eyes.

My first impression was that this was a great portrait, well captured. Then I read your description and couldn't believe you were doing the pushing of the swing AND taking the shot -- amazing. Well done.

Lovely pair of images Chant, and sorry I missed them when they were posted. We live 150 miles from Marilyns Grandaughter, so I can imagine how hard it must be for you to live so far from your Grandson.
