Have you ever been told “look at her and you’ll see you when you were younger?” (Obviously, if you’re male replace ‘her’ with ‘him’. *smiles*) Well it seems as if my niece, who was my twenth-seventh birthday present, and I share some rather similar characteristics. To name some, we can’t stay still for too long, we eat yet don’t gain weight (we’re petite) and we don’t like people to cuddle us unless WE want it. When we decide to let people hug us, we do it in…style… In addition, we seem to be lawless alike – thus my Week Nine picture. Gosh, I love my little ‘mini-me’ who isn’t like me at all, contrary to what they say, as she’s so much more beautiful!
During this week my mom had a birthday, I took some pictures for a photography challenge (unusual perspective) and spied on a friend’s baby and my pets 🙂 Enjoy the rest of this week’s pictures below:
I really wasn’t aiming for anything specific this week – the year has definitely started and I’m definitely busy with work. However, some photographers had a ‘portrait’ photography session at the National Park and I think I did a good job of getting some satisfactory images.
The challenge for me was that the subjects were ‘children’. If this wasn’t hard enough, they were in motion – as is expected with children. However, I found two shots that I really liked. This one won out as my image for Week Six because of the concentration with which the girl is trying to fix the doll’s clothes and the confusion that is apparent on the little boy’s face, in his posture. In addition, I just liked how they seem to be doing stereotypical things for boys and girls.
Another favourite was this image. However, I didn’t find it as strong as the previous one so it got a nice second spot for the week. This one was taken right after the first one. At first, I was thinking of using this as the image for the week but then after a while I realised that something seemed ‘missing’ so it got the second spot. I’m not quite sure, even now, what was missing for me…
