I'm not sure that Finley will thank me for this one when he's older, but I couldn't resist posting it. He'd insisted on getting dressed up, because Harmony was wearing her princess costume and Stephanie wig (Stephanie is a character in Lazy Town, a children's TV programme) and decided he wanted to be photographed because Harmony had already had her photograph taken.

As with my previous shot, this was also taken with my new Canon G9, though this time I also had my 580EX II flash attached, bounced from the ceiling. It would probably have been better if I had switched to shooting in manual, as Finley's hands are a bit too blurred for my liking, but I haven't got the hang of manual mode with the G9, at least not when I've got an external flash attached - for some reason most of them end up over-exposed.

And in case you're wondering about the background: Rhowan and Harmony's bedroom has just been decorated; i.e. the walls have been painted and we've fitted some new laminate flooring. As you can see though, they're still missing their skirting board.
