Half-Built Wall-E, and a Spoon
Photo by Anthony M. Friedl

Anthony has taken to playing with my camera (the huge combo of Nikon D700, usually with an MB-D10 vertical grip and a Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 attached), which is fine with me so long as he doesn't drop it.

I found the picture above on the memory card. He took it the other day when I wasn't around, of random stuff on the dining table, including a half-built paper Wall-E and a lacquered spoon.

Here's a shot he took the previous evening while we were working on the paper Wall-E...

Later that day, he wanted to take my picture while I was sitting on the sofa, so to make it fun I put a fuzzy bear-shaped pillow in front of my face, and he took the shot. I'm the yellow blob in the background...

Which leads us to this shot of Anthony today that Fumie took with her cell phone....

I've spent most of the last week either suffering from a mild cold, or working on a new plugin for Adobe Lightroom, so I've not had much time to post. Hopefully I'll get back in the groove soon.

I’ve often wished you would put your photo back on your blog’s title bar. Too bad the photo Anthony took of you wasn’t a bit closer – you could have used that one 🙂

Great pictures as usual – someday I need to find a way to get to see snow in Japan…maybe when my wife and I take our dream two-month-long retirement trip to Kyoto in 20 years or so…

Welp… it’s the money you could be saving with Geico.

With the first photo there, your son seems to have inherited your photographic talent.
