HI Howard, It looks like a misfocus. You are using Auto Area focus. Most likely there was not enough light on the face and the camera grabbed the baseboard as a better focus target.

Thank you Dave.
I guess I should have used the auto setting? I was teaching my 3 1/2 yr old granddaughter how to dial and talk to grandma using manual settings on the camera and ended up being disappointed with the results.
I will try again sometime in the near future.
