Saturday Slot

Just sneaking in with my photo for Our Beautiful World's current theme - TWO is better than one.

And the story is:
How difficult it was to get this shot. You are such a wriggly baby and never want to keep still. This added to the fact that I needed your mouth open made things very tricky. So one hand on your mouth, talking to you to make eye contact so you'd keep fairly still, the other hand holding the camera and clicking without loosing focus or dropping it on your head. Well I'm amazed this shot is as clear as it is - definitely a time when two people would have been better than one!

I'm also sharing my last collage of a photo a day for June:

The stories:
  • strawberry picking - not done this for years! So why did we pick such a bakingly hot day? Probably because we hadn't done it for years and had forgotten how exposed we'd be. Being years older is not an advantage either - bending and crouching such agony!
  • Murray chomping on a treat biscuit. Two seconds later he stood up, did a lovely pose, but ran off too quickly for my finger to click.
  • cherries on the tree in my garden before the birds have found them.
Thanks for looking today, your time is much appreciated.

And keep taking photographs!

  5. Two very adorable teeth on a handsome young man. Great photo collage. I used to pick strawberries all the time. Guess that's one in the "con" column when living in the big city. Nothing better than tossing a sun-warmed strawberry straight in your mouth. Those were the good ole days! So glad to have found you through Our Beautiful World.
