My father was celebrating his 97th birthday, so my sister, Mary Ann, who hosted the family Christmas this year, also hosted his birthday. A lot was going on all the time. It was a very busy and fun place. Lots of food, fun and people.

The order these photographs are in is as much a mystery to me as it might be to you, but all these people are related in one way or another.
Nathan in Hat
The Birthday Boy, John T. Compton, father of J R, Tom, John, Dale and Mary Ann, usually has a small party for birthdays. This was the biggest so far.

These photographs were taken using a Nikon D300 dSLR with a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I shot more than 600 images that weekend, and these are the best. I shot specifically for use online, using ISO 12,500 or higher for indoor shooting, so I would not have to use flash. The IQ (Image Quality) is great for a web page but less-than for prints.
