Tonight, she said yes


MarlaAug13-66PMYes ! I somehow succeeded convincing my kid to pose for me πŸ™‚

I bet every parent to a young child reading this blog (and I’m ready to speculate a lot of my readers have small kids, since it’s pretty much 90% of what I shoot) routinely runs into the stubborn refusals and steely willed rebukes of their beloved offsprings. I know I do. I got my share of five spreaded little fingers plus palm close-ups as my daughter vehemently indicates, in the most graphic way, her opposition to my photographic attempts.

    Big fan of the last 2, most definitely, mostly because of the wood beam perspective……

    I have a new love (which, like most previous ones of that kind, will likely remain platonic). The Lumix GX7….this bad boy is keeping me awake at night. But, of course, I don’t really need it…..but it would look so cool with one of those adapted lenses…..
