A Difficult Model

We headed out to fly a kite and take a few photos of the boy for a potential Christmas card photo late last week. The boy was clearly not in the mood...and neither was the wind for that kite. Here are some photos:

This was a pleasant face...

OK, there's a small smile, but lots of shade on his face.

More frowning.

This one, though, was the clear winner.

But, we ended up going out later in the holiday weekend and taking some family shots. So this one didn't make it to the card. A LOT of shots to get that one good one, though. OY!

See you soon.

  1. You are lucky that you have such a photographic subject. Even when you point out the negative part of a picture (shadows), it is still a great picture. I had your kind of luck as well, I took pirctures of you and your brothers and even I, looked like I knew what I was doing.
