Camera averse

CJ's aversion to being photographed is getting worse. Now I have to master the art of stealing shots. This is a rare click that managed to capture most of his face. I'm happy I got his long hair before the lola decided this style should go.

Sometimes I think the aversion is a kind of condition but well... for this week's MM theme: lights, camera, pose...

Voila! that's his pose.

There are proper, decent poses of kids on Chris's MM participants list. Check them out at The Mommy Journey.

Magiging ganyan din mga anak ko soon hindi mag pose kailangan we have to be quick in stealing shots. Your son looks like a girl in her long hair and he is a handsome young man.

He is growing up so fast and right before our eyes. :) I wonder if he just doesn't like his picture taken because you are taking them. You know how young kids can be with their parents. Make things as difficult as possible LOL. I know I did that and still do...oh my...I hope he doesn't turn out like that LOL :) Have a great Friday :)

How old is your son, Mommy? When my son is in the mood for posing in front of the camera, that's when I get his best poses. When he's not, it will take forever to get a decent shot of him. LOL!

Chris, i wouldn't have had any difficulty as 99% of his photos nowadays are either stolen or forced hahah

zoan, oo nga totoo... :D

Willa, i'll go get him an electric guitar :)

Shy, yong dapat mabilis ka ng pagshoot, tama yon lol... nakakapagod nga lang kung minsan

Thom, yeah i think so too he's growing fast despite being a picky eater. that's a good perspective you have there - how come i didn't think of that angle? boys! lol

chubs, yon ang sabi ng lola nya - mas tidy daw ang maiksi kaya within an hour of our arrival at home, maiksi na kaagad buhok nya.

bonz, napagkamalan yang babae sa immigration in manila people in hongkong were undecided, lol!

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.
