Unless we hook them early.

Hey! Good smile!

Woah, but the high ISO noise is horrible!

Nice series 
And I bet that E1 will hold up just fine till he's ready to use it too.

Olympus will never be doomed if people like you continue showing great photos.  Olympus needs to put you on their marketing team.

Olympus will be fine if it continues to be competitive and produce quality products like the E-M1.  I'm watching them on the sidelines while I take pictures with both my Canon and Olympus DSLR cameras/lenses.

Great series, really!  Would make a nice little set hanging on a wall or sitting on a table.

Excellent series, the best of children's of photos to treasured are these types (also important to be kept and brought out for 21st or wedding etc to remind the youngster in front of all friends of how it was ).

Love the last

Cute series Seth!
In reply to SirSeth, 7 months ago

However, judging from photo #2, you need to get him squared away on the location of the shutter button -- it's not on the hot shoe!:-D

Wow, how time flies -- it seems like just yesterday that you were posting photos of your lovely wife when she was pregnant with this little bundle of energy!

P.S. Being a former drummer myself, I love the 'naked drummer' photo in your galleries -- although I never played mine naked (that I recall):-)

I pray that you and your sweet family have a most blessed Christmas and New Year's Day!

God Bless,

Greg

Duuude! You've got to get back to drumming just so you can play naked.

I actually was banned for a while from DPR because of that photo. Forgot that the cute little cheeks that I adore on my little drummer boy might be taken as "child porn" by some. Weird world.

Thanks for looking and commenting. Merry Christmas to you. Great reason to be thankful!

BTW, my wife is due in June, so there will be more baby pictures.

Best,

Seth

Thanks John for the well wishing. We are driving 1600 miles at Christmas (first real road trip with the youngster), so safety is on my mind.

Best to you and yours this Christmas as well.

Peace,

Seth

Thanks Tom,

He's talking up a storm and learning so much--what a great age. Will understand how to open Christmas presents for the first time this year as well.

Finally getting to play with Daddy's camera with the understanding that it actually does something is a new thing for him. Having a difficult time getting him to look through the viewfinder though. He is always plastering his eye against the LCD.

Angela is pregnant btw. Due in June. We are excited.

Best,

Seth

I started to reply to individuals until I noticed the time! Yikes.  But thanks for your kind comments and for not torching me for having a provocative title.

Best,

I didn't know what to expect when reading the subject title; very funny and cute! Soon he'll want his own, you know Memorable captures... who knows what cameras will be like when he'll be a grown-up.

Congratulations on Angela's pregnancy. I have to assume you will be staying in Maryland for a while.
