This is not the picture I envisioned. The picture in my head will have to be stored away for some future round of Theme Thursday, because I have to post this.
On Tuesday, The Jude came up to me very seriously.
“Mama? I need you to tape this to my church shirt,” he said as he handed me one of the flowers from our saucer magnolia in the front yard. ”And I need my tie. Then I need you to take a picture of me and Gabriel. Over here. On these stools.”
There is nothing better than being bossed around by a four year old with an artistic vision.
All I had to do was meter the light, focus, and shoot these two knuckleheads interacting. I took about ten pictures, then The Jude told me that was enough, and he’d like to see the results. As he sat in my lap, very seriously studying the outcome, he finally pointed at one picture.
“This one. That’s the best one.”
So I submit for this Thursday’s Theme pleasure, The Jude’s choice:
I also edited it in black & white, which I prefer, but The Jude was adamant. ”No. The color one!”
(but he doesn’t read my blog, so he’ll never know that I slipped my version in here as well)
I can’t wait to see your pictures of your boys.
