My mother's husband, David, is an amateur photographer and a very good one. He has printed calendars of family photos for my daughters, compiled pictures from vacations and from an outing to the Bronx Zoo into small albums for them, and designs his own Christmas card with a montage from the previous year.
These were taken from his kayak while on the Charles River in South Natick, MA.
You can see more of David's photography at hiswebsite.
