I love it when creative photography ideas come to fruition. When Nora was six months old, pretty much as soon as she could maintain a propped up sitting position in time for me to snap a photograph, I created a composite photograph of four of her sitting on our ugly green sofa. Then, a year later, I followed up with a shot of her six month old self with her eighteen month old self, which clearly left two spots on the sofa for older versions. Last year, I filled in the third spot with a 2.5 year old Nora. The time has now come (I set a calendar reminder) to continue the September tradition and add the fourth Nora to the sofa.
It's worth viewing larger.
Clearly she's grown a lot in the past year. And, for some reason, this is the first year I actually got her in focus. My past self was so inept.
Here's the close-up from last year and this year.
That's the same kid, alright!
Perhaps next year she'll have to start standing behind the couch? I'm not sure. We'll see...
