Solution for Artwork Dilemma

I’ve been looking to update the artwork in the boys’ rooms, specifically Wildman’s room.  I can’t take the cute cartoon giraffes and hippos that have been above his bed since babyhood anymore.  It’s so heartbreaking to take them down but he’s six now.  He needs something a bit more mature than prints that matched his long ago crib set.

A couple of weeks ago I took my D3100 to the boys’ t-ball game to capture a few pictures for posterity.  When I got home and began editing them, I found that I had taken a few really special photos.  I picked my favorite of each boy, made them black and white and will be taking them to the photo shop today to have them enlarged to 11×14’s for framing.  What a perfect artwork solution!  Custom, personal, unique!

I adore this shot of Wildman playing catcher for his team.  I took this picture through a hole in the chain link fence.  The look on his face melts me!  It is perfectly him.  And he has the catcher’s stance down.

Have I mentioned how much I adore my camera?  No?

It’s love!  I love my camera!  There I said it.

Cutie Pie had just touched home plate in the photo below.  I love how mussed his hair is.  The cuteness is almost too much to handle!

I can’t wait to get these pictures up on the wall!
