This is more of a 'fun' shot than the previous two, but I do quite like it. It was taken about 20 minutes prior to my previous two entries and is of our youngest daughter sleeping on the beach. She'd fallen asleep in the car and slept quite happily for another twenty minutes or so before waking up and posing for this shot, my entry for the day before yesterday.

I love your recent series of your children. Looks like they are 'well trained' already to ignore the camera and thats why the shots are that beautiful. And this one is quite funny indeed. Greetings from Dresden.

I can't say why, but this picture reminds me of a cartoon. I like it. The contrasts of the colors work very well, and so does the perspective. Perfect title, too.

So do your kids humor you when you try to take a picture or do they "ham" it up for you?

I amazed at the amount of depth you can get with that G5 at f/2.0!!

This shot made me laugh - thank you!

And I love the colours :-)

Cool shot. Love the colors.
A small request - can you make a small tutorial and go step by step about how you get your derived black and white images. the whole thing about extracting Red channel and stuff. i know you've said it in here a lot of times, but it's still a bit confusing for me.

Lovely photo. It's great to see a kid pic taken from an entirely fresh angle!

Great perspective here, and nice depth of field. I'm going to have to buy a pair of pink sneakers to try this out myself... but somehow I feel like it won't have the same effect... :)

Geez David, I hope she's OK.

I see that child modeling can be very tiring. take it easy on your kids man.

the depth of field is great, you own some very nice camera equipment.

comment by Sandra Rocha at 02:50 AM (GMT) on 27 August, 2004

LOL this is great, perfect title for it too :-D

Normally, if this picture was taken by someone else, I believe I would find it boring, but your pictures have such great color and focus, it makes them all the better and more interesting.

Ahh, the life of a child -- if I had one wish -- just one... I'd be sleeping on the beach -- dreaming of things to come...

Great shot, David!

That's a fantastic follow up to your previous two posts. It brings a lot of 'realness' to the series. Great photo's.

comment by djn1 at 08:20 AM (GMT) on 27 August, 2004

Thanks everyone.

mark: the younger two (the ones in my most recent shots) tend to ignore me, but the older two do "ham" it up on occassion ;-)

mandar: next time I use that approach I'll explain it in more detail.

Man down! Man down!

I think you need to photoshop a bunch of lilliputians in there tying her down.
