I like borders, some do not, it's a choice.

My grandson Declan once again entering a free study challenge.
Declan has such a wide range of facial expressions - a joy to photograph, mostly he comes across as quite a serious boy but in fact he is full of life and full of fun. I love him dearly.
Just a snap of him but I liked it a lot. How will it do? Not a ribbon contender and to be honest I don't care where it finishes I just like it a lot.

Thanks for taking time to comment, it is appreciated.

I agree the frame is distracting and I tried to hide it as much as I could - hence the vignetting. This was not a posed shot it was a quick snap I took whilst at his younger brothers birthday. I would like to take some photos of Declan in a controlled environment but until then I will have to make do with what I take these days - snaps.

I'm not so sure. No more innocent than other boys at his age. Very nice!
