Lilly The Robot Has A Huge Thumb

Mostly this picture is cool because her thumb is screwing up my light meter. She was following the beeping sound my camera makes when I have it set on multiple exposures. Either children are naturally attracted to electronic beeps or Lilly’s a robot looking for a friend. Sorry… that’s all I’ve got, it’s really hot and I’m messed up on Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi. I think it’s the sodium benzoate that makes my palms numb.

Technical Stuff: Lilly is actually the first baby I’ve ever had as a subject. I took semi-professional photos of Lilly and her parents a few months before I took this shot, one of which they used as a Christmas card… which they never sent me. Did you hear me sob right there? I think her name is spelled with two L’s… if they had sent me a card I’d have it in writing so I’d know for sure.

The worst type of photo is the shot of a kid not doing anything. Get them doing stuff, then take the photo and please, please, immediately store it away in a giant box with all the other photos that look exactly like it and never, ever, take that box out to show your friends or family.
