Beautifully composed shot. Excellent choice for the Theme.

Adam Gregory said...

What a great shot! And of course, any picture with your grand kids in it is bound to be great.

It's good to be back to your blog. It'll take my a few days to catch up. But, I know that it'll be worth my time.

Shabbat Shalom.

This is just delightful, Dina and what a wonderful memory it has created.

Jack and Joann said...

Oh, Dina, he is so adorable and the photo setting is so striking. I would have chosen that photo too. Grandmas know what to highlight as the best of the year. LOL!

I see a theme upon a theme among most of our photos: we've all chosen something that we shot well, with the added bonus of it being something that moves us personally. In other words, we just like it.

This is a wonderful picture, Dina--sweet as well as skilled.

Hilda said...

A beautiful, loving choice.

Kate said...

Looks like he was seeing eye-to-eye with the statue. It's wonderful to see the world anew through the eyes of a child. Whimsical photo!
