I'm Lovin' It, Grandma!

I saw a flash "hot spot" (reflection) on the base of the chrome sprayer that was a little distracting, so I cloned it out.

Thanks for Joy and Bob C for your prior comments:

Joy Rector: love this shot

Bob Cournoyer: Good one! Love those eyes... :-)

Awe, Wesley looks like fun. This is a keepsake Terry! #10450943

Thanks, Donna - he's a blast. His first birthday is 12/10...so we'll be there to celebrate it with him (and his parents). #10451051

11-month old grandson Wesley doesn't care for his bath at first, but he quickly learns to settle down and enjoy it - especially at Grandma's house. Used a small Rogue Flash Bender with Diffusion Panel mounted on my Canon Speedlite 580EX-II. The flash head was mounted on the camera's hot shoe.
