Picture Imperfect

When my granddaughter, Carli Blue, was an infant, her dad, my son, loved to photograph her every few minutes. Therefore, her infancy will live in photographs for years to come. However, she is now seven years old and quite the little princess. Her dad and mom still take photos of her often but not so often as they did when she was a newborn. She has grown into a beautiful young girl who has lived with her parents in Ecuador for the past several years. During this past summer, she traveled with her mom and her dad, who is a saxophonist and vocalist with the musical group, the Alan Parsons Project. Part of that travel was in Italy, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, and France. Of course, again many photographs were made with Carli in the foreground and sites famous throughout Europe in the background. However, the most unique picture of Carli Blue was taken when she was still wrapped in bunting. Her daddy got into trouble for this picture when he showed it to his wife, Emma, who screamed, “She could have fallen!” And I guess she could have, but she didn’t. Here’s what her dad labeled “Carli as E.T.”

    Dads so often do things that moms could shoot them for. Fortunately, most babies survive. Mine did.
