photoblog image My Nephew

My Nephew

My nephew from last week at Thanksgiving. He is two and a half and quite adorable as you can see. I had not seen him for a year. I cannot believe how fast they grow!

I have not been posting since the summer as I have been working hard on my thesis. But I have lots of pictures and I have made good progress so I will try to post more regularly for a while. :)

Ohhhhhhh. What a big crocodile tear, as we would say!
Charles Dastodd: I know! I got lucky because I didn't even see the tear when I took that shot smile

Lovely capture Charles
It's so nice to speak to you again Charles, I hope you are well.

A beautiful and tender frame, and the tiny tear must have a story behind it.
Charles Dastodd: Thanks, its nice to be back. Just been such a busy year! My nephew here was eating his breakfast and if I recall correctly he wanted a piece of chocolate and not his cereal. grin
