Tim and Granny

This photo was taken this past Saturday when my wife and I joined her nephew, mom [pictured here], family, and friends at the Monument Inn Restaurant for some tasty seafood. In this shot her nephew was kidding her mom about me photographing her and I really liked the contrast of expressions that resulted.

The contrast between their expressions is everything in this photo. It tells a story and makes it interesting to view.

Well done!

I agree with Barry. You really did a good job capturing their reaction to what ever.

Thanks. Tim is a character and he was teasing my MIL about me taking her photograph. I certainly couldn't have directed a better composition.
