    You forgot to show the photo after where they were knocking each other over.

    Nice photo.

    Very sweet capture of that moment. Having photos of them together will be something they'll really appreciate when they're older no doubt.

    Thanks BBW and Voyager!

    One of my projects is to maintain an online gallery of pretty much every photograph I take which has both of my sons in it. Most are snapshots which would have little to no appeal to anyone besides my wife and I, but I think it will be special to the boys when they get older, and I love looking through it from time to time.

    BBW, that's a very good point - I have a photo I cherish of myself with my older brother... this is what I meant in the other thread about leaving a legacy.

    Cheers

    Brian, I just finished reading Streetshooter's thread and can definitely relate to something from everyone's posts and your leaving a legacy was definitely one of them. Is there anyone on this forum who doesn't enjoy looking at photographs of people...but I digress here from this thread's subject.:redface: I'll just add that photographs of people can seem almost timeless, yet pack so much history and emotion as well.

    Back to kids having fun!:biggrin:

    They are both having such a good time together and apparently still very at ease with your photographing them! They're both awfully cute and I do like those binoculars, too.:biggrin: Great color!

    My first child I took thousands of shots, then the next one came and took hundreds, and when my last arrived, he's lucky to get a photo on his birthday!

    My point: shoot, shoot, shoot.

    Great shots Amin, I can feel the love in your words and photots.

    BB, pete, Cosina, Sabesh, vietcam, thanks everyone!

    I was sitting on one end of a see-saw and the two boys on the other end when I made this photo. Somehow that always works for getting their attention :smile:.
