Last week I had the pleasure of getting to know Phil Kwong and enjoying a photo shoot with him at Point Reyes. https://www.nikoncafe.com/vforums/showthread.php?t=177685 Phil's vacationing here in the SF Bay area while his son, Julian, now 13, has been attending Summer Camp at Stanford. His wife, Margaret, and his daughter, Natalia ( 8), joined him this week. Yesterday the family picked up Julian at Stanford so we met for lunch and brief shopping stint at Stanford Shopping Center. Phil looked so much more relaxed and I got to see another side of him as he laughed and played with this kids. When I first met the kids, they were shy for about 30 seconds. Natalie loves to tease her brother. Julian plays it cool for a while and then can't resist joining in. They seem to have a great brother-sister relationship and really enjoy being with one another. Phil told me Margaret had been his high school sweetheart. That's because she is a real sweetheart, and the leveling point for this very active family. She is one busy lady, though, with full-time job and family. Julian pretends he doesn't enjoy being in front of the camera, but he wasn't afraid to show me he likes doing so. He's very observant. Natalie, on the other hand, couldn't care less. She's just a carefree 8 year old. Look how they are growing too. Won't be long before they are both full-fledged teenagers, Phil!
