Stopping Games

Any photographer of animals knows that producing the camera to capture the antics has the effect of stopping games immediately.

Why are you pointing that camera at us, Hu-Dad?

Roscoe and Typhoon were having the ultimate wrestling match on the deck. Nothing hindered them running back and forth and creating a giant racket…until Hu-Dad decided to capture a few photos of the games. The second the camera came out, all play stopped, and the boys did their best to look innocent.

Typhoon and I playing? Does it look like we were playing?

Hu-Dad took several pictures of them milling about the deck until he finally gave up and put the camera away. The games immediately recommenced.

The zen of Roscoe.
