I've never been accused of being a traditional sort and this year is no different.We decided that our christmas card should reflect who we really are and what is important to us. This is my wife and I with our 4 grandkids dressed in our typical watch tv "comfort attire"



Happy & Joyous Holiday Season from our house to yours

very nicely done, Zig-

Just so I will not be a faceless blob/name to you, here is what I look like. I auditioned an E-420 today, tomorrow it will be the E-520. You are an E-510 user, any thoughts??

What a beautiful family portrait, Zig. Lovely faces. I like the softness and color saturation of the image.

Hi Zig,

Very nice shot and i know how hard it is to get 4 children to do what you want without silly faces LOL.

It looks like you got one of their parents to stand behind the camera to get the attention of them, unfortunately they were not right behind it so your wife and 2 of them are not looking into the camera....... however, most won't notice, it's only the pedantic people like me who pick up on such things .

Looks like you are all set for a great Christmas.

Seasons greetings all,

Mark

Hi Mark andthanks for your comments.

You obviously have been through the process oftrying to corrall a group of youngsters into taking a group photo. We actuallytook 2 shots of the group with this being the best. In my mind, it was anachievement considering we had just finished having brownie pie with vanilla ice cream and the kids were riding a pretty good sugar high. I'm glad we didn't wait any longer to take the photo because the group got pretty rowdy shortly thereafter.

Yes, been there done that and got more than one t-shirt LOL.

I do some portrait sessions a few times a year to raise money for charity and it is usually families with young children who want them so after a day of that I've had enough of the silly voices that I have to do as well as using the parents to get the children's attention (whilst ensuring they are looking my way not that of the parent).

Hmmmm, with the sugar high you are a braver man than me :-).

Mark,

In my humble opinion, any man that can devote a day to taking photos of families with their young children is certainly a braver man than I!

and all for a worthy cause. Well done

Zig
