Uncooperative Photography Subjects

Every day, we try to share three or four photos of us, but Hu-Dad says that can be quite challenging with uncooperative photography subjects.

Quick – Look Away

As an example, one second before the photo above, Kiska and Qannik were looking directly at the camera. Hu-Dad focused and snapped. The output is as you see it. “Come on, you two,” he shouted, “Can you look in the same direction?”

Sure, that's easy.

Sure, that’s easy.

You probably can hear Hu-Dad sighing through your computer. “How hard is it for both of you to look at the camera?”

Difficulty level is high.

Difficulty level is high.

And that is when Hu-Dad decided to go for just one good photograph.

You are making funny celebration noises, Hu-Dad.

    I believe head of security Ms Kiska is tired of posing
    The life of a model is so stressful

    Well you both have beautiful profiles but I sure do love the full on furry face shots ????????

    Mom ‘n Ebby both say: Well, one out of two is at least a 50% average, and it IS a beautiful picture of Miss Kiska!

The Red Balloon (Except Silver)

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
