Subject: [Leica] PAW - week 18/19 - heninger

I'm catching up after loosing myself in Death Valley last week (stay
tuned for pictures next week on that adventure).  

These pictures are from a series of events in the previous weeks.

Week 18

Week 18 was taken at a church cultural night.   I loved the beauty and
grace of this dancer in particular and I'm delighted with how this
picture captures both the grace of her sweeping motions and the beauty
of the girl.

The Alt 1 was snapped at the same event.  This is a lucky coincidence of
my scanner misinterpreting two frames of the same dancer as one and
scanning it as a sort of wacky panorama shot.  I did *not* stitch these
together and that is the same person in both.  Odd outcome, but
providence sometimes provides.

The Alt2 for Week 18 was taken out front of my house on a lazy Saturday
afternoon. As I dozed on the couch in a semi-comatose state, I vaguely
noticed that the neighbor boy had started playing his accordion.  I laid
there for probably 30 minutes enjoying the breeze, the music and my own
half-hearted attempt at consciousness. Finally I decided I had to have
the performer's picture, so out I charged with camera in hand, in what
I'm sure was a somewhat nutty state.  

Week 19

Week 19 is my daughter, often a target of my attention, showing off her
"pretty dress".  Most anyone with a 3 year old daughter will recognize
the importance of "pretty" and "dress" to a girl this age.  We just try
to make sure that "smart" and "strong" get inserted as well.

The Alt is my wife and our 3 month old son, doing what he does second
best.  The first thing he does, of course, is fill my heart.  And the
expression on my wife's face is also what new parents do best: endure.
