Funny Story

So my eldest son, H and I entered a photo each in the local show this year. H is in the junior section and I entered in the open portrait section. We were both happy with our images and I took them off to our lab to get them printed and matted. So Far so good. After a quick chat to the shop assistant regarding size and cost (where i mentioned to her the section's we were entering our images) I started to download the images to her computer.
That's when it happened. The moment you take stock and realize that one persons Mona Lisa is another person's preschool drawing. The moment when I was so grateful that I can have a laugh at myself and be happy with where I am as a photographer. The moment that i realized that my entry didn't stand a chance in this competition =)
My image (for the portrait section) was up on the store's computer screen when the assistant leaned over with a small gasp and said to me...

"Dear, do you realize that their heads are cut off ?'

What could I say. Their heads were cut off. I had framed the shot like that. I loved this shot. My clients had loved this shot. So with a grin I explained that this portrait image was as it should be and I thanked her for checking.    Moral to the story - God made us all unique and different. I'm so glad He did.

Be happy,
