I don't do much post-processing on my pictures. I'll remove some red eye and do the occasional bit of cropping and brightening, but my lack of photoshop and free time gets in the way making the digital works of art I see on other people's websites. And in general I like that. I sometimes think that in ten years people are going to look through their photos and wonder what everyone actually looked like.
I took this picture at JP's banquet Saturday night. I almost deleted it because Landon is looking away and I was just fooling around with the settings, trying to take a decent picture without the flash. But the more I look at it the more I love it. This is one of his default expressions- a semi-thoughtful look, with eyes wide open taking everything in. I was playing with it in Picasa and for the first time ever, liked the black and white with a spot of color effect. His cheeks are flushed from the heat and the background is muted and I just keep clicking on it and thinking, "yep, that's my little man."
And then I'm bowled over yet again with how much I love the curly-headed, tantrum-throwing little monster.
