Ayy For Adorable!
The stage was set. It's spring, the trees were in bloom, and there she was. Posing for the cliché-ish, yet, fun portrait; the "Jump" pose.
When I saw her from a distance attempting the first jump I immediately headed that direction. I got down on one knee and waited. She took a running start, leaped, and BAM! After viewing the back of my camera I thought, not bad for a first try. I'll do better on her next jump.
But that would be her final flight. She asked her photographer if he was able to get the shot. Apparently not because then she looked at me and asked the same question. I gazed once more at my camera and said; yes! Would you like to see it?
When I showed her the image she seemed pleased. But, as you know, photos always look good on camera. Reality doesn't strike until they're seen on a computer. She asked if I could send her a copy. I agreed and took her information.
Later, when I got home, I uploaded my pictures from that day. I was especially interested in the jump portrait. Although it was colorful, and cute, I noticed she was infected with slight blur due to camera shake. DRAT!!
But I did promise to send the image to her and (reluctantly) that was what I did. She thanked me and wished me well. Hopefully she liked it. At first I wasn't going to post it on Flickr. I was a little frustrated and felt that a good photo opportunity was wasted. But the image is still adorable. =)
