Chong Chong at 13 Months

Here are two shots from the series I’ve been doing of Chong Chong exploring my wallet.

It is great watching him turning it over and over examining it, and then taking everything out. Very impressed with how much dexterity those little fingers have.


I would’ve liked the focus to be clearer on Chong Chong’s upper body in the first shot. That said, it does help to focus one’s attention on my wallet, which I think is an essential element of the photograph.

I’d rather not have clipped his pinky in the second shot, but it is what it is.

As usual, both shots were taken with my DMC-GX7, and developed using Lightroom. New for these shots was using Lightroom to set the White Balance (Fluorescent).

Oh, from the response I got from an earlier posting of the first shot on facebook, it seemed like i should run some sort of “caption this” contest. So, if you’re up to leaving possible captions in the comments, please feel free to do so.
