His First Camera

Uploaded: May 18, 2013 15:29:51




Had fun shooting this squirrel in the park a couple of years ago.
This is not photoshopped.
I actually had the miniature camera and a treat to get his attention.

Hope it makes you smile. You can find the story & image sequence behind capturing this image at "PHOTOGRAPHY 101"
I will try to hook up a link for you to do go there. Sept 13, 2015
