Wordless Wednesday: All grown up

My nephew stopped by the other night on his way to a prom.

I pulled out my camera because I loved how his pink tie matches the pink brick of our house. And the lighting outdoors was perfect at the time. And darned if that Japanese Maple wasn't looking especially beautiful that day.

It has nothing to do with me wanting to photograph his handsome, all-grown-up face...when I can remember him as a newborn baby like it was yesterday. Nothing to do with the fact that when he and his twin brother graduate, I'm going to be watching my sister's face as much as theirs.

Nope, pulling out my camera to photograph him was strictly based on aesthetics.
