alex, age 5

Photographed with Nikon D300 and an ancient 100mm manual lens.

Today was picture day at Alex's school, and she asked me if she could wear her hair wild and curly.  So we got her all fixed up, and Marcus put her in the car to take her to school.

Unfortunately, because of some crazy storms we'd had last night, the streets were flooded, and her school was closed.  She returned home somewhat disappointed, because she very much had been looking forward to taking her school photograph with her wild, curly hair.

So I pulled out my camera, and grabbed my favourite portrait lens.  And even though I'm sure sitting with me wasn't nearly as fun for her as sitting on a fake, astroturfed pastoral scene at her school, I'm still pleased with how it turned out.
