I'm not sure how you would define "perfect" but Glenyce Jane comes close to exemplifying the word for me. What grandparent wouldn't think that? Add Katie and son Brian to the mix . . . well, it doesn't get much better.
I will admit that our visit to Washington Square Park in lower Manhattan left a little to be desired. It was cold, breezy and for our formal attempts at a family portrait, Glenyce was uncooperative. This unguarded, spontaneous moment was the only real keeper of the 15 photos I took. I like it, though I'll admit my aesthetic senses are blurred a bit by my love for the subjects. :-)
Is the photo perfect? Not really. And I am somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to my photos. But it occurs to me that for a perfectionist, very little in life is perfect. That's a bit of a paradox, isn't it?
