Lucas at 14 months and Nicholas at 3 (October 1995). This picture was used from November ’95 until September ’96.

Nicholas & Lucas
Lucas at 2 and Nicholas at 4 (August 1996). One of my favorite pictures. It’s a grayscale composite of their annual portraits taken in July and August ’96. This picture graced our home page from September ’96 to August ’97.

Nicholas & Lucas
Lucas at 3 and Nicholas at 5 (July ’97). A very grown-up-looking Lucas and his big brother led off our web site from August ’97 to March ’98.

Nicholas & Lucas
The same picture as above but with a little shadowing added to pop it out from the background. This picture is used since moving to our own site (ducdo.iperweb.com) in late March ’98 until August ’98.

Lucas (4) and Nicholas (6) in their OKHT cycling jerseys. Portrait taken in August ’98, scanned and prepped with Adobe PhotoDeluxe.

Nicholas and Lucas
Nicholas (6½) and Lucas (4½) playing in the snow in early January ’99. This is a composite of two separate pictures. The images were merged and manipulated with PaintShop Pro. This picture was used to introduce our new domain (www.thedos.org) in February ’99.

Nicholas and Lucas
Nicholas (7) and Lucas (5) at Arlington National Cemetery on a visit to Washington, DC, on a hot July day. This photo is digitally altered from Mom’s favorite snapshot. Ol’ Dad was cropped out of the picture, the boys were moved closer together and enlarged slightly. And voilà! Scanned with an HP 5100Cse scanner and manipulated in PaintShop Pro. (Used between September ’99 and August 2000.)

Lucas and Nicholas
Nicholas (8) and Lucas (6) clowning around at the koala display on an early-summer visit to the Louisville Zoo. This picture was used for a short time in late August and early September 2000. Scanned with an HP 5200C scanner and manipulated in PaintShop Pro.

Nicholas and Lucas
It was nigh impossible to coax a winsome smile out of Nicholas (8) and Lucas (6) at the same time for a family portrait. But when they do, watch out for the devilish grins. These boys are up to no good! Scanned with an HP 5200C scanner and manipulated in PaintShop Pro. August 2000. (Used between September 2000 and December 2001.)

Nicholas and Lucas
Showing an ever-grown-up demeanor, Nicholas (9) gives the camera his undivided attention, while Lucas (7) flashes his model-caliber smile. This photo is a composite of two snapshots. Lucas was reduced slightly for the correct perspective and the boys merged together. Scanned with an HP 6300C scanner and digitally altered in PaintShop Pro. December 2001. (Used between December 2001 and November 2002.)

Lucas and Nicholas
Lucas (left, age 8) and Nicholas (10) are both bespectacled now — their fates sealed genetically since every member of both immediate families has to wear corrective glasses. Not much digital modification was necessary with the picture, since it started out as a wonderful shot of them shoulder to shoulder. The photo was taken with a Fujifilm Finepix camera at about 1 megapixels, and digitally processed and reduced in size in PaintShop Pro. November 2002. (Used between November 2002 and December 2004.)

Lucas and Nicholas
The Do Boys, Lucas (10) and Nicholas (12), in an ever-rarer moment where they cooperate to be photographed and photogenic at the same time. Photo taken with a Nikon Coolpix 8800VR digital camera with fill flash at 3 megapixels, and digitally processed in PaintShop Pro. November 2004.

Lucas and Nicholas
Lucas (12) and Nicholas (14) out on a late-fall hike in Jefferson Memorial Forest. Photo taken with an Olympus SP-500UZ digital camera with fill flash at 3.5 megapixels, and digitally processed in PaintShop Pro. December 2006.
