Then and Now.
My dad is something of a wonderful amateur photographer. I have lots of great photos of myself when I was a kid (and plenty of my horribly awkward phases too). I know he's happy that I've picked up the photo bug. And as this year winds down I want to take a minute and honor all his help and encouragement to me (in all things in my life, not just photos)
I love you papa!
(I'm not certain exactly how old I was in the early photo here... perhaps a comment from my father will enlighten me *hint* *hint*)
EDIT: my papa has informed me (via my livejournal cross-post) that I was almost 8 years old when the younger half of this image was taken.
EDIT#2: I made Explore! For the 6th time ever. #354. I couldn't be happier that it's this picture up there. :) (up to #112 now woohoo!)
