    Hard to believe how much people and trees grow in 10 years. Seems like yesterday.

    Nice. Yeah, people and trees change but people change quicker.

    Very nice nice pictures Brian and a nice idea for a thread. Time is truly our most precious commodity. Photographer Scott Bourne (Photofocus.com) had a blog entry (Capture a Moment Before It Goes Away Forever) this past week that has some nexus to your theme...

    We started an annual practice where we took hand and footprints of my son starting at age one and added some of the year's collected trinkets to the cast as well. We then placed them in one of our flower beds. He is 12 now and the footprint has given way to just the hand print, as he now up to a size 9.5 shoe-size.

    Of course you are both touching a spot in this mother's heart. We just came back from visiting our "baby" for her 21st birthday and taking her out for dinner with some friends.
