I always thought I looked younger than my little brother until I saw this photo.



Basie needs to be walked about four times a day.  Somehow, this "family" pet has become my main responsibility as I do most of the walks.  I don't really mind the midday walks - it's the crack of dawn walks that bug me.  My favorite time to walk her is at night, though.  We've had a ton of snow lately and there is that bright, crisp coldness outside at night.  

Tonight I recruited Harrison to come with me.  He is so full of energy now that school is out.  Ella is having a friend over for a sleepover and that just jacks him up even more, so I pulled him out into the darkness with the enticement of my camera.  I told him that he could take as many photos as he wanted.  He loved it.  This one of me, above, completely caught me off guard when I was downloading the images.  I don't even remember him aiming at me.  

Just when I thought I was getting better at Photoshop, I can't figure out how to "airbrush" all my smile wrinkles away!  This embarrassing moment is meant to kick me in the ass to brush up on my skills.

This is a beautiful photo. The soft blues are so sweet and you look so gentle/peaceful. It is cool to think that this is what your on saw in that moment as he looked at his mom. Pretty lucky!

You look great, and I love this photo. Such a genuine expression. You do need to learn to photoshop *other* people when you go pro though, so check youtube for lots of free tutorials and buy the book "Skin" which does an awesome job of explaining skin color correction and retouching.
