Oh, we're winning ribbons now?! How nice!

The Thanksgiving Trinity: grandparent, grandchild, grandturkey. Wonderful snap. Your granny too?

Wonderful shot, Ben. Congratulations on the ribbon. I'm laughing at the plate with almost nothing eaten. You have brought back a strong memory for me.

At one Thanksgiving dinner, the elderly host said to my 3-year-old daughter, "You didn't like your dinner?" My daughter replied, "Oh yes, I tasted everything, and it was delicious!" To that the host replied, "Cory, you are a most delightful liar.", and my daughter beamed with pleasure.

Beautiful shot and the tones are spectacular
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/26/2011 07:52:45 AM
Wish you'd cropped in more on the girl's side and included more to the left so Granny's not falling out of frame. Nice use of b/w and good subject though.

oh my word... she has grown up and this is so adorable. What a blessing.
