Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces – A More Standard Offering

A Special Face…


…In my life πŸ™‚

My wife photographed by our Son when he was 7.

    A beautiful face! Amazing photograph – especially since your son was only 7 when he took it!

  2. Your son took this at seven?!
    Wow! You have a very talented family Martin!

    • Thanks Bob – The camera, of course, did the focussing and exposure. But the composition is all his. A classic example of technology freeing up the artist inside πŸ™‚

  3. At such a young age of just seven years old I think that
    you have a professional photographer in the making πŸ™‚



  4. I love everything about this post ~ the great face . . . the 7 year old photographer . . . and a husband and father bringing it all together. πŸ˜€

  5. great image of your wife oblivious is she on her mobile xxjen

  6. Lovely…sometimes kids get to a simple truth we overlook. I hope your son is still taking photographs, Martin..

  7. You have a lovely wife whose kind and loving face was well captured by your son. The most unguarded moments are usually the most beautiful ones. thanks for sharing your wonderful family with us. Your son has a talent for taking pictures. Have a great day my friend . Best wishes to your family.

    • I’m not sure our Son would call her kind and loving when she’s pursuing him about his homework LoL πŸ˜‰ Thanks for your kind comment. Have a good one and our very best wishes to you and your family.

  8. ha. yeah, very cool photo. i suspect your son has figured out that if dad does it, there must be something special about it – and that’s when the intuition takes over and snap. sometimes kids see in fresh ways – i like that. aloha.

    • Thanks Rick – Very possibly πŸ™‚ I know that some of his photos are fascinating and he clearly has an eye for a shot (when he isn’t busy playing electronic games).

      • aloha 2e0mca – funny, although we know there is more to life than electronic games, here WE are electronic-ing. I suspect, his ability to “see” the screen in his gaming is also what helps him see the photo-in-camera. plus lots of other things, I’m sure. cool on how we learn. aloha.

      • They encourage them at school these days too – his homework this week includes putting together a powerpoint presentation about the Solar System. That’s for 9yo’s. but they started them two years back at a basic level. Fortunately I’d had him making cards and other things in PowerPoint since he was 4, so all I have to do is advise him about his content these days πŸ™‚

        I started this because I wanted to do a blog about my football club – What’s your excuse Rick πŸ˜‰

  9. You have a beautiful wife Martin. Your son took a good photo for a 7 year old. Following in Dad’s photographic footsteps by the look of it.

    • Thanks Tony, I love her – Alasdair seems to have an eye for a photo and a style of his own. I hope he continues to pursue the hobby as he grows up πŸ™‚
