Q: What is the best lens for theater photography?

A: Do you know?

Looking at this photo of my daughter I can see the physical changes, the long legs (accentuated by the reflection) the more adult looks and reactions and posture. She's not just growing up quickly, she's racing away from childhood at light speed. I'll try and hold on to my little girl. In some way shape or form, she will always be there, no matter the age.

In the My Daughter, My Model photo essay.

    This is such a beautiful portrait. It is so hard to watch them grow. It seems they are in a race to get away from us. Don't worry though Mike. Daddy's girls always remain Daddy's girls.

    I'm the proud father of twin girls, who are just 8 months old. I've got to say, they're growing up too fast, so heaven knows how I'll feel when they're this size!

    Great tones, and I love her stance too. Very odd effect from just the feet "missing".
