Today was the big parade day with the guest of honour being the Governor General of Canada. He came to the reception as well. Next thing I know my son and his friend are with him and he's offering to pose for a photo. I had to act quickly to get this. I know the background is busy but one does not ask the GoC to move :shrug: Either way, it's one for the family photo album.

Great selection of aperture to blur out the background people a bit which makes these shots just dandy. Well done, Proud Mama. :)

thanks Iggy. I actually did the blurring in post processing. it's not perfect and I want to take another crack at it but it was a learning curve.
