    That first shot could be out of the 1930s. Beautiful.

    I'll go through my archives for Nikki.

    Thank you Brian and Christi.
    Dana was a patient model for my extensive lens comparisons then. Lina was barely 6 months old. I then used a Bessa T for the magnified focus aid for better focus.

    Here is my eldest, Chloe. She is turning 6 this coming Sept, You are not kidding when you say they grow up fast. The first shot was taken when she was probably around 3 or 4 months old using a Nikon D200 and the 105mm VR micro. The 2nd was taken just in January using a Leica M 240 and a Leica 90 Apo-Summicron.

    Nikki will be 16 this coming May. She's been through a lot, hard to believe the surgeries were over 10 years ago.

    I having seen quite a few photos of Niki in the past, I can really see the young woman now emerging and your picture shows a girl with confidence and sense of fun :). Lovely to see. I don't know what medical problems she had in the past but she's obviously overcome them now.

    I love this thread and all the photos. Raid, that first one is unbelievably beautiful.

    They do grow so fast. My older son Oliver, taken with my first interchangeable lens camera, a Canon Digital Rebel (300D):

    Thank you Amin.
    The photos that you have posted look great (as Brian said).
    Time flies quickly, and our children are so much older!

    Christilou, "Three Beautiful Sisters"- and the first shot is a life-keeper, really puts things in perspective with the Date on the car.

    Rick- Nephews are fun, wind-em-up, give back to Mom!

    Thought I'd share my two sons. These photos are made about 10 years apart. The first one was made while living in Portugal. The second one while at camp this past summer.

    It's lovely to see them all grow up into young men and women :)
