Dad and son is a really nice shot. The two men at the table would have been much improved if you'd crouched down and lowered the viewpoint. I've taken so many shots that would have been much better if I'd lowered my viewpoint that I've developed a callous from kicking myself.

Seeing as how Sonny, Douglas and Daniel have made the list safe for cat pictures again here's the Dumbest Cat Snap I may ever take. Returning home one day I found my cat Alex sitting in front of a cheap poster repro of a Dennis Stock shot that I like; the M-6 with 85 Nikkor and T-max 3200@1600 tell the story... http://www.pbase.com/image/26595261 BD's street trio regarding the photographer reminded me that engaging the subjects can be a good thing; M-6, 21 CV and the T-max again: http://gallery.leica-users.org/chicagopeople/Two_Guys_a_Dog And Bob Meier's shot with the two faces in the frame set me to working up this father-son thing; green channel from Fuji Provia 400 shot with SL/50 'cron: http://gallery.leica-users.org/chicagopeople/Johnny_Jared Alright, enough of this fast/loose/high speed film/hand-held fun & games. Now I must prepare to dabble in a world where fussy stuff like fine textural detail might be important. Armed with Pea Shooter on 'Pod, I must sally forth...
