Vicious Cycle

When Alice gets cranky, aiming the camera at her and snapping a few photos usually proves distracting enough to curb the tears.



 

The tricky part is that these days, when I take close-ups of Alice, she is no longer content to act as mere subject.  She wants to get behind the lens or, more accurately, get the lens in her mouth.




The problem with allowing her to do this becomes apparent when I lose control of the camera, causing her to bonk herself on the head mid-grope.

And then we're right back where we started.

  1. I will snap plenty of pictures in a couple of weeks - let's just hope they aren't tearful! Can't wait to see you guys.

  2. YES! I was hoping you would. Also, maybe by then I'll figure out how to get alerts when people comment so I don't respond 3 days later....

  3. I think I figured it out. Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3.
