Katie is eight years old today

She'll probably spend most of this rainy day flattening my pillow:


(Shot with the Nikon D300; program mode; 1/13 sec @ f/4.8; ISO 800; auto white balance; Nikon RAW file processed with Lightroom b&w creamtone preset.)


  1. Happy Birthday, Katie! What a beautiful, beautiful shot! I really love black and white pictures. I should try to do that more often myself!

  2. some pictures just seem to lend themselves to processing in b&w. i'm not sure why. i was more attracted to her gaze when i took the picture.

  3. Happy Birthday beautiful! Here's to many many more.
    Wonderful snap as always. I don't know what color the bedding is, but presenting this shot in B&W does what you want; drawing us to her gaze instead of being distracted by the bedding.

  4. Happy Birthday, Katie:) Looks like she's picked the best place to be on a rainy day!

    Stunning photo, her eyes just draw you in.

  5. Katie! Bernie wished you a Happy Belated Birthday!!!

  6. thank you, everyone!

    lauren, i hope bernie is continuing to do well on his meds.
