168/365

Thankful Thursday! Here are two of my precious blessings – the two who were willing to come out for pictures. :-) The Daily Shoot challenge today is “Shoot wide open today. Make a creative photo that uses a shallow depth of field to good effect.” For those who aren’t familiar with these terms, that means that the subject will be in focus and the rest of the photo will be blurred. For this photo I used my 50mm lens at 1.8 (as wide open as it will go) to keep Nathan sharply focused and throw the “stuff” in the background (trees, tires, etc.) out of focus.

Here’s another one. Is Caleb growing up too fast, or is that just my imagination?
