I'm gonna tell you right now.
I did not capture this picture.
Apparently L-boy has come down with a bad case of "camera shyness".
That or he's just being a royal toot!
He will no longer look in my direction when my sweet little Nikon is anywhere close to my face.
It is becoming a bit of a problem.
My dear son has eyes for no one but me.
Have I mentioned he loves his dear mother.
Except for when I unveil the camera.
I can dance a jig, bark, meow, or even whinny like a horse.
And believe me, I do.
But to no prevail.
I love candids.
I don't need his full cooperation for every picture.
But, just every once in awhile, it would tickle my fancy.
Is that too much to ask?
So, the other day, after a very frustrating attempt, I passed the camera to D-man.
"Here! You do it!", I said in the sweetest tone possible.
And what do you know!
L-boy was so shocked to see his daddy with the camera, that he looked right at him.
Of course, D-man was quite proud of himself and immediately requested that I post this to my blog.
Have I mentioned that he enjoys being the center of attention?
So, I'm happy to give him the attention he so rightfully deserves.
Here is the picture after some editing in Lightroom.
I'm new to Lightroom.
But I like it alot.
Because I like light.
As much as I want to just fix colors and such.
I always have to de-saturate, and make the picture look older than it is.
I really should be Laura Ingall's sister.
Yes..those are crumbs on his face.
I have a really difficult time painting those out.
I've got a "thing" for dirty faces.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
And now, let's all give D-man a round of applause!
On a completely different note.
We watched You, Me and Dupree the other night.
The resemblance was un-canny.
I'm thinking maybe another haircut is in order?
But in the words of Dupree...
This is just L-boy, in all of his L-boyness.
I don't want him to lose that "ness"!
