Tempting fate

OK, not a great shot I admit, but hard to resist a moment that made me both smile and gasp. (I don't have a DSLR, but if I did I don't think I'd dangle it in front of the baby!)

That's an expensive teething ring.

Ha! How do you know this isn't this little tyke's camera of choice? A born photographer if I ever saw one. :-)

I hope he also took a picture of you. :)

I hope it was switched on and the lens cover was off, it would have made a great self portrait!

Oh my! Hope s/he wasn't drooling on the lens ;) ... on a similar note, my son almost sat on my camera yesterday. So tough to keep our equipment safe enough from curious little hands...

Lulu, what surprised me a lot that you don't have a DSLR. Are you shooting with a film camera?

It's a very expensive toy he is playing. And his parents are so careless. That is what came on my mind first and then I smiled and thought that he might be one of greatest photographers of our time.

I don't have a DSLR either ( except for work). I think it may be his first selfie.

Mine aren't allowed near my camera or my phone!

You need to be quick if you want some nice moments.
Really nice picture.

Lovely!

Jack said...

Yikes. I am seeing the start of a real mess on the lens.

Lisa Gordon said...

OMGoodness, I think this is a fantastic shot, Jude!
Really adorable.
A little photographer-in-the-making!

Oh, that's asking for trouble!

Thank you! Kaya - I usually use a small Canon point-and-shoot, I think it's a Powershot 1200 or 1300 (and occasionally a larger Panasonic Lumix point-and-shoot that belongs to my partner, if I can "steal" it from him:). I would love to invest in a DSLR at some point!

Ohhhh...that's a level of trust I'll never reach!!!

What a fun capture Lulu, i can just imagine what will be visible through the lens the next time the camera is used..special effects :))

EG CameraGirl said...

Hmmmm. I wonder if after cleaning the lens the owner allows baby to play with the camera again.

JM said...

Way too cute! Great capture! :-)
