Aleks can't sit still for a second

I took Aleks outside this afternoon for a little photo shoot. About 130 odd photos later, I had three which looked pretty good. This is one of them.

    I'm not really sure what he was thinking at this point.

    Oh, he's just eyeing the escape route. (^.^)
  • leadegroot said:
    I'm thinking that if this was taken just before the one on the rock then he is thinking 'I could climb that rock!'
    BTW - for those who are playing at home, what we call 'rocks', most people would call 'boulders'. When we mention children 'climbing onto a rock' we mean literally 'on to it'.
    Honey, go shoot a rock and show 'em. Oh, darn, its dark... umm, isn't that what flashes were invented for? Go on, it will be Dramatic, daaaahling!)

    why dont you grab the camera and shoot a rock or is that too risky, do you not like taking photos, I'm intruiged and curious Lea ,you have a cute little chap here !
  • David de Groot said:
    He was on the rock by then, I posted the shots in the order they were taken, and I'm not going out in the cold to take a picture of the rock :P

    But here's one I prepared earlier:

    (the rock on the left, with the flat face)

    Well, I could, but its dark out there, and turning cold.
    Besides, I'm right off this 'photo taking' thing (ok, I'll pause for a minute while you all climb back on your chairs ;)) - I used my (brand new all singing all dancing) camera phone to take some photos of client premises the other day - and the results were disappointingly laughable.
    Me and my shakey hands :(

    (What, you're suggesting I should deprive Dave of a photo-taking opportunity? I know what side of the bread the butter is on!)
  • looby88 said:
    its a very nice rock, and if thats your garden - can I come and live with you !!

    Lea, you just need a proper camera, as for the bread- well David does make that as well I guess...difficult situation you are in, dont envy you at all.......!!!!!
  • David de Groot said:
    That is indeed part of the wild untamed "garden" :)
  • Margot- said:
    I don't think I can call that a garden at all. That's a forest!!! Our garden in Japan is so tiny and if you put that rock on it there wouldn't be a place to stand on. *sigh*
  • leadegroot said:
    no, no - thats the tame part!
    A couple of months ago we went for a walk through the back. We took a machete (we should do that again, hon ;))

    I have a feeling I am going to inherit a camera soon, if the amount of research happening is any indication ;) I just have to earn a bit more money... :)
  • looby88 said:
    Lea, that would be good, I had that camera to start with, its a good camera !
  • leadegroot said:
    Yep!
    <earn, earn, earn ;) >

    (I suggested that, as I am self employed, I could justify buying it out of company money - for me. But guess who that would mean got to use it most? Hehehe. Got me a *big* dirty look ;))
