The unpredictable ravings of Sterling W. “Chip” Camden, independent software developer.
Portrait by my daughter
Posted in | 16 Comments » RSS 2.0
My daughter is now seventeen. She draws nudes. But good ones. She was 18 months old when she drew her first picture. My guess, by the shapes of the digits, is that your sweetpea is about four or five, or very talented. Good luck Dad…and remember…you only go through it once! Savor every moment to remind you of how sweet she really is when she’s not so sweet as a teenager.
Thanks, kristine. My daughter was seven when she drew this portrait. Now she’s nine, and a much better artist technically. But I really liked this creation, it captures something about me that I can’t quite put my finger on. Geekiness, perhaps.
You know, I think you are the first Camden (besides myself) I’ve found out there also in development.
Likewise, Raymond. Any relation? I come from the Camdens of central Virginia, who came over from England around 1700.
My side of the family is in VA, but not from there originally. My grandfather, Kenneth Camden, was in the Portsmouth area I think from the 50s up till the last few years. Paul Camden also lived there till he died. I don’t remember the other great aunts and uncles.
did your grandfather graduate from odu in the 70′s?
Very interesting, Raymond. You might find this post intriguing.
I see you do a lot of work with Cold Fusion. I’ve never used that myself, although I’ve used just about every other web platform out there.
Nice link. I would obviously recommend you taking a look at ColdFusion when you can. I’m biased towards it, but I do truly think it is the best language for web development. It may not be OOP, but it is the most practical web dev language I’ve seen yet, and the most accesible to those w/o a CompSci degree. Ok, I’ll stop advertising now.
Heh. OK, I’ve subscribed to your EgoAddict feed. This looks more to my interest than your main site. Maybe you’ll start posting to it again.

Aww! That’s priceless.
Thanks, Linda. Thinning, don’t you think?
Sorry for lifting your content from techrepublic. I have deleted it.
Thanks, M.S.Shine! I don’t mind if you print just an excerpt and link to it.
Hehe, I love your daughters’ picture!
Thanks, Leaf! Nice to see you over here — hitched a link from Teeni’s site?
