Almost a teenager

My oldest is getting close to the dreaded teenager stage.  Not quite happy with being photographed anymore, but now and then I get him to agree to my taking shots while he ‘does his thing’.  He loves climbing anything: trees, playground equipment,…  I often get him from below.

He is a real bookworm, so the glasses truly suit him.  Only problem when taking photos is that they go dark.  I decided today to try my faster lens and shoot indoors.  The lens kept giving problems, not focussing, then stopped working all together.  When I checked it to see what was wrong, I realised the lens had separated completely from the electronics…  It must have been from when I got knocked hard while in a store a little while ago.  A guy walked hard into me, knocking the bag off my shoulder.  I suspected I lost something when the bag hit the floor with that resounding clank, but the lens still seemed to be in one piece.  Apparently I was mistaken.  Now to get hold of a husband on the other side of the world, who forgot to pack his cell phone charger!


  1. Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about your broken lens :( I hope you get it fixed soon!

  2. My daughter is just coming out the other side of the teenager years. Phew! There IS the other side!
    Your boy looks beautiful!

  3. Good to know! Thanks Joy, if he can just remember to brush his hair ;)
