Theme Thursday: Close Up

I have not participated in the Theme Thursday link-up in a dog's age.  But I thought I'd join Michaela et. al. today (one day late), because I have the perfect photo to fit this week's theme: "Close Ups."

Here he is, our newest family member--our second grandson and our sixth grandchild overall (I'm calling him "Little Dude" here at the blog).  Is he gorgeous, or what?  When my husband and I flew down to meet him on the 10th, the day after he was born, I snapped some pictures of him in the hospital.  I zoomed in on his perfect little face and somehow ended up with this utterly amazing shot.
I already posted this picture earlier today on String of Pearls, in color.  But since this Theme Thursday link-up is all about photography, I thought I'd play around with it a bit and see what it looked like in classic black-and-white.

When you're finished swooning over Grammy's little darling, head on over to California to Korea to see more close ups from my fellow blogging shutterbugs.

    1. I lucked out, Erin. I pointed and shot, and somehow ended up with this. I need to take one of those online photography courses you talked about. I think I would actually enjoy it.

    1. I know I'm his Grammy, so I'll be accused of being biased--but I agree! :)
