...fourteen/threehundredsixtyfive...

Spent the evening with my folks.  With my Photography in full swing fueled this here blog, I, of course, had my camera.  Unfortunately, my mother cringes when a camera merely turns in her direction.  I'll get a good shot of her yet!
Much to my surprise the gem of all the shots I took tonight was a portrait of my step-father.  I was just showing him the difference between a shot taken with my 18-105mm @ 85mm, f/3.5 compared to the same shot with my new 85mm prime @ f/1.8 and BAM there's the shot of the day.

I've run the gamut of emotion with this big scary face, but these days it's not so big and scary.
...grandchildren will have that effect.
