Testing, Testing (on My Grandson)

Any of you that know me know that my new camera was in the shop last fall. You might also know that when I purchased my new camera, I also purchased two new lens, one of which stopped working properly and was replaced at no cost to me. Well, probably very few of you know that same lens had problems again, and so once again Idaho Camera traded it for a new lens — at the cost of the manufacturer of course. Call me unlucky, call Pentax unlucky, or call Idaho Camera unlucky, but my point in telling you this is that when I went to pick it up, Pat told me to “use it, use it, use it, test it, test it, test it.” My son and grandson came over last night (you can see where I’m going with this, can’t you?) and so to do what I was told, I had to have someone to test it on. 🙂 You know that period of time between clothes and jammies, when kids just love to run around as naked as possible? This is that period of time. Can you tell who I’m mentoring to become the next photographer in the family? Smile daddy!

The next sequence of pictures is of a little baby who doesn’t like the word “no”.  I couldn’t even tell you why he was crying, but as you can tell by the expression of his dad sitting nearby, it wasn’t earth shattering.

From here, my grandson buries his head in the leather couch, pulling his head off and on looking at the snot and tears he left behind.  His dad is amused but does not interfere.

Not getting the reaction from the crowd he wants, he turns off the tears as quickly as he turned them on and goes on to something more gratifying– reading.

Cute isn’t he (he’s now 15 months old). This next picture I can’t explain. After reading on the couch, he gets down and starts reading on the floor, then looks down and starts doing this. ???? Perhaps we should have a caption contest. 😉

Oh my hell…here’s my caption:

“This stupid diaper! It’s cramping my style!!!”

I love the temper tantrum pictures- the best part is Matt in the background completely neutral. He’s so sweet- thanks for the updated pics!!! Now keep practicing…errrr, testing!
