One of My Favorite Photos, Challenge: Share Your Favorite Image

This will be one of my favorite pictures of Eli for a while.  It really captured the little man.  His essence.  His tractor, and his Teddy.  The things he loves the most.  I've never seen a kid love tractor's more.

I love Eli. He is so beautiful. Beautiful boys are rare. Will he grow up to look like Brad Pitt?! Gorgeous! He will definitely break a lot of hearts. He would be a great subject for Norman Rockwell or Eloise Wilkin. For now, he is a great subject for Derek! =.)

This is the kind of picture one would expect to find in a Time/Life Photo book.  Its timeless.

Awesome!  Looks more like a painted portrait than a photo.  You should submit it somewhere.  (Just stopping by to see, Donna sent me!) - Barbara

I've just come across this whilst browsing the round robin, it's wonderful, it should have pride of place over a fireplace adding to the warmth of the surroundings.  It's truely a remarkable picture. xxRache
