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.

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.
