The girls at 5 Minutes for Mom are at it again, this time with a photography twist...ya'll knew I'd have to get in on that! They're challenging us to shoot photos from unexpected angles to to add interest and variety. I like my little point-and-shoot digital camera for this very thing, since it has a flip-out screen that also twists so I can raise or lower my camera and still see what I'm shooting.
This feature allowed me to get this shot of Alex eyeballing his cousins' birthday cake last summer (that I did not make, or it would have squirrely writing all over it). Maybe the composition of it isn't stellar, but it captures that moment when I wasn't sure if he was going to swipe one finger across the icing or just sit and contemplate his next step.
(He ended up contemplating, not swiping. For once.)
