I recently finally got around to looking at the photos I took the last time I visited my mom. During that trip I also visited my nephew, niece-in-law, and their son. Of course I took many photos! Over Christmas I had a very small number of keepers, especially considering how many attempts I made. In going over the most recent images, I was very pleased to find two consecutive images that I’m very pleased with. Here’s one of them:

4M6C1476.CR2: 5D Mk.III, EF 50mm 1:1.4 @ 1/250, f/2, 800 ISO

Isn’t he adorable?

I continued looking at the photo, and noticed my arm on the left side of the image (cropped out of the photo here). Wait, my arm? Then I remembered that my nephew Steve took a bunch of photos with my camera!

I’m glad to have the images, but it means that I have no really good ones that I’ve taken. I must have lost my child-photography chops!

I’ll just have to keep trying. And in the meantime, Steve is taking and sharing the most amazing photos of my great-nephew!
