"She was through making out with Ian. He was never going to change."
A line stolen from Bitter with Baggage Seeks Same - The Life and Times of Some Chickens - one of my favorite picture books of all times.
LOVE THIS TOAD. Love the toad stool. Love the Pentax 16-50 2.8.
I actually spent today shooting family portraits - four sessions - two in New Durham, NH, and two in Portsmouth, NH. Four very different families, three very different locations, and each session was amazing for very different reasons. The light changed from shoot to shoot, the family dynamics were vastly different in each group, the ages of the kids were all different, too. And I am thrilled with EACH group of portraits. It is hard to believe I get paid for this on days like today when everything goes *just right.* And catching up with old friends, one I haven't seen in 15 years, was an absolute pleasure!
But then...then I found myself on my stomach with this teeny little dude, and this teeny little toad stool. Heaven for a whooooole other reason! He was smaller than my finger, fyi, and a fast little bugger. I think picking him up repeatedly wore him out, and eventually he was the perfect little model. My friend's daughter may have been peed on a little (BY THE TOAD, not me) but isn't he worth it???
