    Love that shot TNB. The sun just cresting the lens hood is fantastic and to see Nikon reflected in the lens. Cool.

    I didn't mean to sound like I'm alone out there as it were. I know almost everyone has some form of "hardship" fellas. I'm seriously just glad to have that shot and probably wouldn't have posted the extra info if I wasn't drinking all arvo.

    Edit. Thinking this post a bit more carefully now.
    Appreciate your sentiments in the spirit in which the'yre intended. Some photos are emotionally gold for us. I guess that's what drives me and presumably many of you to capture these fleeting moments in time.

    It's good to have a little backstory and know that other people are complete individuals and not just a collection of photos.

    That is what business cards were invented for isn't it?

    Be careful. You will start to look like a Pro if you do.

    It's my youngest son, severley disabled and so can't smile for the cam. Here's his Christmas day smile when getting his pressies. Pressie donated by a charity.

    Hope I've not lost too much internet anonimity with this post.

    Edit, the arm from the red t-shit is his 6 yo brother helping him hold and play the toy.
    I am realling loving this photo on so many levels!!
    A real gem - so nice to have that smile captured
    & Yes it does justify getting a good bit of equipment
    Superb!!
