Day #3

I Love to Play


It was Monday... Labor Day and my daughter and her husband wanted to go to the movies so we went over to stay with the kids for a few hours and of course I had to take my camera.

The kids call me "Lala". Nooooo... I did not want to be called Granny or Meemaw, or Nana or some such name.
I wanted something a little different so after the first grandbaby's birth I decided on "Lala"... like the teletubby! Yep... totally insane!

Well... Lala has stuck. Not only do my grandchildren call me that but my co-workers started calling me by that name and then even a few of the doctors at the hospital were calling me Lala.

The light was lovely coming in the window yesterday and I did some quick portraits of the kids and now today I sat down to look at them a bit more closely.
In one shot, my silhouette was quite evident in Alaina's eye and that made me want to play... and play I did.
So... this is my image for today...

(Isn't retirement grand!)

I must comment here in response to Scott's remark... how very sweet and kind. I certainly hope so!

Very nice graphic processing touch. I'll bet you are in more than her eye. Her heart must keep your presence.

You are so creative. Good eye to catch that reflection Lala. A piece of art.
