Update: I swapped this image as I decided that I preferred this one. The original can be seen here.

Photographically, other than the shot of my bum, I’ve been rather uninspired the last few days, and have ended up scrabbling around for shots when at other times they seem to come quite easily. This one, which is more a bit of fun than anything else, was taken earlier this afternoon from inside our children’s play tent and is the most interesting of a few I took of the kids as they wandered around.

It’s hardly an amazing shot, but I do quite like it, not least because the mest has added some interesting blur to the shot despite the wide aperture.

Nice, shot, but I share the opinion of Sandra & Richard: I prefer the original one ...

Anyway, thx for burning my retina every day.

Thanks all (despite the fact that you all preferred the other one).

Tudy: it's a small play tent, which I can just about sit up in, so it wasn't too much of a squash ;-)

It must be my Catholic upbringing, but looking at this shot I can't help but feel like I'm in a confessional. ;)

I'd like to go against the grain here and say I prefer this one, but I really do prefer the other. This shot just seems covert; the other feels playful and fun. The human element is much more obvious, and I think that's what makes the shot work so well. Cheers.
