Way Back When-esday: Focused

Summer 2003, Jungle Boy at age 5. He was sitting by me at the zoo, watching his sisters climb on a cargo net. I love this profile shot I managed to get.

A dozen shots later, I got this one of Drama Girl. Believe me, there was lots of smiling and happiness that day - but I'm glad I also got a few candid pictures of their serious faces.

I can't remember why each of them sat by me. I think it was hot and they were taking breaks from climbing around. Whatever the reason, I think these portraits serve as nice reflections of their inner selves.

Way Back When-esday is hosted by Cheryl, who has all the good ideas so I just join her parties all the time.

4 people stopped folding laundry to write:

What great photos!!

I just posted old photos of my parents and grandparents ... everyone must be having nostalgic thoughts this week.

Hope your having a good week.

Oh ThreeUnder...look at their innocent little pensive faces. Those contemplative, thoughtful moments are so rarely captured. What a treasured pair of pics.

Thanks so much for playing along with Way Back When-esday (and for the ever-so-kind words!)

Happy St. Pat's!

What sweet kids. How do they grow up so fast? I'm going to have to do a way back When-sday too. Great idea!

OH! I just LOVE profile pictures and made even better when they are serious. These photos are fantastic!
(you should make them into those silouette photos by printing out, cutting, spray paint black & mount on white paper & frame)
