Hats off to the parents of toddlers: Photographic selections from some recent private commissions

Toddlers have boundless energy and often not yet the most developed common sense. They might run off a rooftop or into a sea of waves if it weren’t for the exhaustive efforts of their parents.
Cheers to you –  parents of toddlers!

It was a rare day that I had a date with my neglected other child, my Nikon. I had a day to drive around the fingerlakes. Here are some of my favorites from that beautiful sunny, rainy, stormy, humid day.
