Impressive photos. It's a very refined sense you have, there, In Wales! These are 'portraits' in the full sense of the term: with character.

What an attractive lot!

The portraits are excellent!

And Christopher is obviously highly tuned to empathy ;-)

Not with my nose, he isn't!

(Truth: Christopher is an amazingly sociable, tolerant baby, putting up with hours of the ET crowd in restaurants without complaint).

Thanks so much for all the time spent in the darkroom, these photos (and the captions!) bring it all back so well.

I am afraid I was too busy chatting and drinking to take too many photos. But here's one I did take, of the base of the Eiffel Tower.

that view the result of where you fond yourself after too much drinking? ;-)

But I like to guzzle beer....occasionally... and especially in good company!

I suppose that guzzling beer and being charming aren't entirely incompatible!

Thanks for the pictures; it was a great week-end!

Really lovely and attached to great memories.  Is it my eyes, or is everyone exceptionally tall in the first picture?
