Cop a squat

You know, the funny thing is, I don't have to pose her. Well, hardly ever. I just follow her around with the camera and she just does things that are imminently photographable. This, of course, makes my job as Mommy/Photographer/Documentarian a helluva lot easier.

She was playing all over this jungle gym and then up and decided to turn around and have a seat on the first step. I was chimping (that is DSLR-speak for looking at the images on the camera's LCD screen instead of paying attention to what's going on in front of you, thereby usually causing you to miss the money shot, which is ironically what you're searching for on your tiny LCD screen) and hadn't even noticed. Almost ran over the poor girl in my distracted state of following. I'm lucky I even got this, as I had the 50mm prime on which, obviously, doesn't allow for zooming. I had to back way up to get the shot, and by the time I had her framed and started snapping off pictures, I got four and then she was up and moving again. This is the first, and best, of the four.
