An Afternoon with Grandpa!

This is my granddaughter Raquel.  I feel like a kid again when she is around!  Raquel has such wonderful blue eyes and has reminded me how important it is to take time out to remember and cherish the things in life that really count, family and quality time together!   She’s just a little sweetheart, but then again, I’m biased.  grin

The eyes are for me a reflection of one’s soul and nothing could be a finer soul then that of a child. Reflections of what they see in a way, if we look close enough maybe we can see the world from their view, a world that is totally free and new and full of adventure and imagination and free of discrimination.  


She saw my doo rag laying around and had that wonderful childhood curiosity about what it was.  Once I showed her it went on the head, she just had to wear it!  And I just had to have a shot!   This was shot in full sun mid afternoon, no fill flash, no reflectors. sun was just behind her and the house was acting as a reflector. Used the Canon 70-200 2.8 IS L lens which has become a favorite close up portrait lens.






I absolutely love spending time with her, she is just a joy to be around.   Love to watch her go exploring in my backyard and record these precious moments of my special times with her.   It’s such a blessing to have her in my life!

She has a new baby sister Raven also who is now about 6 weeks old!   More about her soon! 



Hope you are having a wonderful day!
