Some of you may remember seeing some images of our son, Graeme, over in the Sports Forum. Usually, he's whistling down a snowy hill in a tight skin suit, or whacking a baseball on a dusty field. But, like all teenage boys, he does eventually clean up, and his mom and I think he cleans up not to bad. This quick grab shot from his recent graduation was one good example: NIKON D200    ---    48mm    f/5.0    1/30s    ISO 200 He'd just had a haircut a week or so prior to the event, and looked kinda spiffy IMHO. But it does grow out, and about a month later, in the heat of the summer, we/he started to wonder if their might not be a cooler way to enjoy the heat. After, if all that stuff on top keeps your head warm in the winter, it can't do much for cooling. And it was getting a bit scruffy: NIKON D200    ---    52mm    f/4.0    1/400s    ISO 400 And although the girls swooned at grad and the ladies cried, we wondered if it might not be time for a haircut. NIKON D200    ---    52mm    f/8.0    1/250s    ISO 400 So he talked with his grandmother, who said by all means get a haircut, and I spoke with his mother, who at first said " What!", and before she could get home from her business trip, off to the hair centre we went. There were a few pensive moments, NIKON D200    ---    62mm    f/2.8    1/20s    ISO 400 But at the end of it all, big grins: NIKON D200    ---    52mm    f/4.0    1/60s    ISO 400 After all, it does grow back. As to the hat, well, it's a bit big right now. Hope you enjoy.
