The Gallery - World Photography Day

I had grand plans for this weeks Gallery. Tara wanted us all to make sure we dug out our cameras to capture a moment from Friday (or the weekend) to mark World Photography Day.

Great I thought!

A perfect excuse to dust off my DSLR and take a photo with my camera remote control of Mini Cheddar and I doing what we do best - having fun together. More often than not, I'm the one behind the camera so very rarely do we get any photos of the two of us. I think the last half decent one of us was taken in March 2010 and resides on my About Me page.

I was excited! I even put her cute little camera t-shirt on to mark the occasion.

However, she had other plans.

She didn't want the camera set up, not even the remote control could get her interested. She had a strop, she got upset, she got all snotty and she dribbled. A lot.

So this is my entry this week. A moody toddler captured forever to mark a great day in photography. Shame on you Mini Cheddar.



Now head on over and check out all the other entries...

I think this is a great capture, how often to you take photos of the other side of toddler life? When I looked for one I realised we have none.

Multiple Mummy said...

My toddler is going that exact same thing - refusing point blank to have his photo taken! You have to start getting sneaky! Regardless that she didn't ant to plat that really is the perfect photo! x

Mummy's Space said...

Great photo capturing that expression - cute even when midst tantrum x

Emma said...

Ha ha, but what an adorablely cute little face! xx

This is such an excellently taken photo! You can HEAR that cry! Brilliant shot. Hugs to the little lady! 

Christine said...

Love it, just show it to her when she's 18, in front of her friends.  She'll have another strop, but without the tears! :-)

Pampered Mummy said...

Oh bless, my photo didn't really go the way I wanted itto so I took another too!

Jacq said...

I so recognise the moody preschooler stage. It leads on nicely to the moody school age child, then the moody preteen....

mummydaddyme said...

Thats the beauty of photography though- it totally captures your mood and emotions!  So although MC had a diva strop it is still a fab photo! x

Sarah said...

Awww, bless! That is a very real photograph of one of those 'moments' captured brilliantly x Love her little camera top x

Lagos Mum said...

I LOVE this photo!  And it's probably turned out better than any of the others you thought you might get :)

Inside The Wendy House said...

I love the infamous Terrible Twos Tantrums!!!  Great picture Heather! x

Lou said...

Isn't that just always the way!
Love your photo though.
This is the first time I have posted a photo for the gallery, so it is great fun to see everyone's fantastic shots!

Lou :-)

Lauren said...

Awwww Mini Cheddar, loving the "no pictures please" celeb-esque diva strop!

Mari said...

Oh dear, it doesn't look good at all does it? Poor little mite...she will NOT be forced into anything will she? :)

Nicki Cawood said...

That'll come back and haunt her on her 18th won't it! :)

LauraCYMFT said...

Oh dear!! Oh well at least you got a photo of her that you'll be able to taunt her with in years to come.

tiddlyompompom said...

Oh I recognise that body language! Brilliant photo, even with snot and dribble :)

Chloe said...

love it !

Mummy Beadzoid said...

Oh bless! I know how that one goes.  Great photo though!  But why won't they just play nice and smile for the camera? :) xX

Lucy at DearBeautifulBoy said...

She may not be very happy about it, but it's a great shot. And it's definitely the sort of photo that you'll look back at and laugh. x

northernmum said...

truely that is a cracking shot!

jessies_online said...

Oh I love that picture....it captures her perfectly. It really needs to be enlarged and put up on the wall for all to see! x

Mums-the-word said...

I have one like this but was scared to use it so well done you on being honest and true

Tara said...

Aww bless her. But do you know what, we never take photos of 'sulks' ordinarily so right there you have a snapshot of life in the SAHM household! To embarrass her with in later life too . . .

Mañana Mama said...

That is super-cute, I love it. 

Rachel said...

Aww bless her!!
