    Kids...beautiful, candid, kids... :-)

    I was expecting to take some shots of visitors coming in to my workplace in their pajamas, for a Sleep-Over weekend promo in area hotels. Also happening was Build-A-Bear and their mascot, Bearemy, for the kids. Guess where I spent most of my time. :-)

    #1...little cutie trying to decide which bear she wanted while mom was filling out a form for a drawing later in the day(she didn't win, sadly). D100 80-200/2.8

    #2 Next one was at a table where kids could color Bearemy and keep the crayons.
    Same equipment.

    #3 Bottom: my boss's little girl, all tuckered out from the excitement
    Contax G2 Zeiss 90/2.8 Delta 100

    As always, thanks for looking.

    Wonderful, beautiful shots Charles. The colors and composition are great.
    I wonder if you had as much fun as the kids. (I'm betting you did)
    As usual, fantastic pictures.

    Beautiful as always Charles

    I love your photos of the "real life"

    You capture the spirit along with the image.....as always.

    Somehow this thread didn't come up on my screen as new (no bold - no open letter) as sometimes happens on my pc for some reason. I'll tell PJ next week.

    Wink Always great!

    Hi Charles

    Can you share any of the settings or if you used fill flash on the B&W picture. Was this natural light or window light? You just can't post such a great picture for us and not brake it down.

    Always a fan

    Settings...this was taken at my workplace, which is perfect for portraits...60' walls of glass on 2 sides of the lobby, tons of light, even on cloudy days. no flash, no nothing, just f/5.6 in aper priority mode, composed and pressed the shutter. Thanks for the compliment.
