The Love Birds & Lucky 100
Image of the Day – Friday, October 2, 2009
Today’s image is my 100th post since starting this blog. Congratulations to me. If you’ve been following along through the first hundred posts you’ll know it’s not easy to get a good photograph of my youngest son, Niko. He’s one of those that wants to hide or cover his face whenever a camera is pointed his way. As it turns out his girlfriend is the same way. This time they got tricked. My friend Leonard has a new Nikon D60 and yesterday evening after our workout we were in the front yard playing with his new Nikon. It prompted me to go pick up my camera.
I attempted to take a picture of Niko and Caitlin and, of course, they covered their faces. When they saw I’d moved the camera down from my face they let their guard down and that’s when Leonard got this shot of the two young love birds. It was around sunset when this shot was taken and looks like Leonard shot with a high ISO from the noise in the image. All I did was crop this picture a bit and didn’t manipulate the image in any other way.
