Last day shoot. Again.

After I'd brought my favorite daughter (I only have one, but she'd be my fave even if I had more. *grin*) home from the hospital... a long day of tonsillectomy and adnoidectomy (<-- is that a word? Adnoids gone, anyway you spell it).

Only one available to model was Hubby. He was already drinking the beer and had on that shirt. (Oh golly! That shirt! How MANY times I've wanted to throw it away ... every time it shows up in the laundry... but I love him, so... I wash it and give it back to his closet for him to wear again. I really am suspecting that I'm a martyr.) He wanted dinner eventually, so I bargained for the hat.

It didn't take much. LOL He's a cowboy at heart... at all times... although he wears a suit tor work.

My kinda guy... a secret redneck. :D

I hope it's at least a 5.9

Pretty please?

The dark leather in the hat, the blue if the eyes, and the blue in the shirt really made the image stand out to me. Plus it seems like such deep thought captured. I love it.

Great exposure and clarity. Almost wishing for less background. 7

Lovely light, and nice moment of contemplation. I'm not sure about the crop...
