[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken the same day as the first one I titled Winter Blues. He's such a jolly little fellow, though, he doesn't stay down for long. He was having a great conversation with himself in the window. I wonder if the other kid was trying to talk him into sneaking outside. :))

One of the reasons I get such good reflections is the reflective coating on the windows to keep the heat down in the summer.

Hi Shelly,
one of those cases when the reflection surpasses the main subject in precision ! Looks good to me , the WINTER BLUES ,i know a few things about that , lol! TFS this moment with us ,the boy sure has a way to express his pleasure that is priceless, a keeper,
A pity you are not well Shelly ,wishing you well , hold on as it just can get better,

Hi Shelly..this is another nice shot with great reflections and expression...nice work.


HAHA! Adorable laugh! You know if we could ALL be like children and just laugh at ourselves, entertain ourselves, instead of fighting and blaming others! HA! Pipe dream!
Love how you captured him in the reflection! Superb work!

Haha - it's an innovative portrait and I really like that. In taking a shot like this, you have also caught a completely honest and candid moment, and the life and expression are fantastic.

I think there is nice balance in the shot too, even though his face is in the centre of the frame, it doesn't feel centred because of the assymetrical elements on either side.



Hello Shelly,I am amazed by the clarity of the reflection, the sharpness is wonderful,even to the moisture in his mouth.
A beautiful spontaneous shot.
Certainly another for the album.
Tfs, regards Jean.
