She’s a photogenic kid, if I do say so myself.
Really enjoying that new camera, I see. :)
Photogenic, absolutely yes. I would love to see a crop of the first shot, concentrating on only her beautiful hair.
When you’re too busy to post, have Athena post up her photos; plus (as warranted) some text along the lines of I was trying to do this, I got what you see, etc. The shop talk of beginners and amateurs can be more enlightening to other beginners and amateurs than the shop talk of masters. Athena can be the Scalzi in lieu of Scalzi (at least til she starts her own blog). All in favor say aye.
Nice. She’s got a certain Amy Brown-esque “Queen of the Faeries” look.
Great hair. Obviously it come from your wife.
I basically came here to say the same thing Jerry Critter said, she has great hair. Apparently there’s also some useful wind around there as well. Nice job all around.
I am totally jealous of Athena’s hair.
She looks more like her mom every day.
Sheesh, I remember when she was a cute-as-a-button little girl. Not that she isn’t still cute, but that’s a young woman, not a little girl. Où sont les neiges d’antan?
I will probably never read any of your books, but I always enjoy your thoughts about things.
Interesting juxtaposition of the first photo with that head shot of you on the left-side column. While her resemblance to Krissy is unmistakeable, she has your eyes. It’s always fascinating how children can be a perfect blend of both parents.
I first met Athena at Chicon7, and now she is well on her way to adulthood. Egad, they grow up so fast!
“She looks more like her mom every day.”
That’s exactly what I was about to say. :)
:D I am totally jealous of Athena’s hair.
“She’s a photogenic kid, if I do say so myself.” Says the proud father! Very nice photos.
I have two boys (one graduating high school this year, the younger next year) who I am very proud of myself! (Duh) They are good looking kids too (take after their mother), but, unlike your daughter, they hate having their pictures taken. Very disappointing to a shutterbug like me.
