Living with an aspirant photographer


Umar and I have become the latest target of our family photographer. Armed with a camera she moves around, without us realizing, our house ready to snap anything which her creative mind and eyes desire. Celebrity paparazzis now appear to be less harmless than her, I'd say!
The above picture speaks volume of what I said earlier! Since she has made it a feature in her flickr account, I'd better explain it here!
Ever since I encouraged her to start her portfolio of piccies she has started amassing pics and us napping have been her latest subject of interest. She has at least five different poses of Umar and I napping immortalised. I'm sure she would have taken about 30 to 45 minutes stalking on us to get those piccies. I just realised that Umar looks like me from the top!
Umar's insecurity immortalised. This is how he sleeps when he realizes that mom or dad may not be close enough to him.

I like that picture.

When I first looked at it, it kinda made me just stare at it for some time. I dunno why.... is it the boy-father intimacy/bond.... but definitely yr daughter has the talent to be a great photographer.

father-son bonding! sweet! boys tend to miss out on loving moments faster than girls so it's good to make lots of memories.

Dad of Four said...

Xis - Not of this kind though.
