New business card makes me proud of my eldest son

I shot a pic of my eldest son, Joe, the other week… just an iPhone shot but a great moment: makes me feel, with him today starting a new school, like in this shot he's looking out onto his future.

So, I put it on the reverse side of my new business card. Makes me feel super proud every time I hand one out.

Of course, I feel proud of all three of my kids…. but the first one is always kind of special in another way.

    5C, +Ivan Yudhi. Plenty of resolution to print nicely at 90x55mm.

    +Alfie Goodrich This is one of great example of 'Camera doesn't take good photos.. People take good photos' Well done! I love the image..

    "'Camera doesn't take good photos.. People take good photos' "

    Very true. Which always makes me baffled as to why the retro film-loving snob crowd think their medium is better, purer etc etc than digital. Cos if it's the eye and the image which are key, what difference does the medium make?

    so well said, +Alfie Goodrich !! (and the BC is great, too – very special, indeed, with the personal touch to it.)

    RFTW – memories churned of one-hit wonder 80s or 90s pop music with that comment, +John Arnett :-)

    Oh, +Alfie Goodrich  – I love that!  And I'm not dealing as gracefully as you, with mine growing up.  I'm working on that.  Maybe a nice trip to Japan would take my mind off of it.  grin

    +Alfie Goodrich what a fantastic idea. I have some great shots of my son, can I steal your idea 😉 ?
