Saturday 21 January 2012: My Three Beauties
My three darlings are (L to R): Max, Laura Earle, and Carlo.
I was unusually lucky in getting this shot of all three together. It's not easy to capture the beauty of just the two boys, even though they're almost always cuddled up. I often lose the best effect of Carlo's face because he closes his eyes just in time to avoid seeing the flash. Here I supressed the flash and pointed a desk lamp at them as I yelled and waved my free arm. At first I wasn't trying to include the girl but after capturing her ear in a few shots, I kept shooting. This capture pleases and surprises me because all three heads are complete, not against too dark a background, and passingly clear.
These are the three little beings who lay their paws on me every day. Look at how beautiful they are! I love them and I'm proud of them.
