We actually do. There's a huge demand for it, and since there is no industry in DC, the river is undeveloped parkland for miles in each direction.

Nice looking log. It's exactly the kind that I wouldn't want the kids to go across, but would know in my heart that their dad was right to let them try it. (Unlike other risks, where I would feel quite certain that it was a bad idea no matter what.)

I didn't go over the log. I took the foot bridge that was 20 feet away.

A few years ago, the bridge was out, and the log was the official way across, and I did it then. Successfully, I might add, but I kept thinking how if I fell just the wrong way, I'd break something and be a couple miles from the nearest road.

Took my 2 weekend charges to the park for awhile and was playing around with my new Canon EOS M mirrorless and a new lens, the Canon 40mm pancake lens. Not the best choice for impromptu portraits but it worked out ok.

Later I played with the images in some different editing programs, LR and PS and also one for portrait work; B&W seemed the best way to go with those bright colors. Here is what I got. Keep in mind Emily is 5 and Sarah is 7... Maybe I made them look a bit too much like pre teens with the sultry looks! Oh and I had to clone one of Sarah's front teeth over the one that fell out last week!

But now you don't have a picture with the tooth missing.

Are you happy with the mirrorless camera?

Look at the third picture for the missing tooth.

chris, not to take anything away from you as a photographer--I think you're great--but your granddaughters are just plain lovely. I bet their passport photos are cute. Just sayin.

Thanks, they haven't traveled with the Mrs and myself yet where they would need passports but the parents have plenty of pictures of them from me up on their walls.

I love when I take them to the grocery store and people say "they look just like you!" I smile and thank them and am amused because we are not related by blood.
