I realize that I'm his mother and therefore you might raise an eyebrow when I say that he had/has that special, indefinable something that makes him an outstanding photographer.

Now that I'm the family chauffeur, I no longer have the opportunity of taking random shots as we put miles on the car. I think using a camera while driving would be just as law-breaking as texting or using a cell phone. Mr. Bob doesn't have the same proclivity for taking pictures, so I often cry out, "Oh, damn! That would have been a wonderful shot!" as we zip past some scene that begs to be documented. I'll give him credit for taking a lot of pictures at the Manor, though.

Chris is the photographer at his son's pre-school and has taken some really breathtaking shots of the students in their school routines, enough to bring water to my eyes. It's a Humphrey tradition, working in reverse, it seems.
