When I read the theme for this week's photo contest was "blue" I immediately thought of this picture. This is one of my all time favorites, probably because it was back in the day before I got my "real" camera, taken with a simple point and shoot, on a crisp February day where the sky was so blue it was almost eerie, with my husband's hands framing this little butterball who is now a skinny busy boy just turning five.
