Kiddie Pool Fun

I have learned that $15 spent on a kiddie pool is money well spent.  I have also learned that kiddie pool play leads to plenty of opportunities to capture my active 15 month old from different angles and perspectives.

Courtney posted a Creative Exercise a few weeks ago encouraging us to photograph one subject from many vantage points.  While I do this on a regular basis it has become increasingly difficult with my active little one.  Her post challenged me to find an activity for B to do that would allow me to complete the exercise intentionally.

 I am linking the above shot up with Show Off Your Shot



However great the activity.............it will still lead to a little of this.....ROAMING EXPLORATION!!!




Hey! Wait!  Where are you going?


Off to catch the Little Dude.
Isn't he the cutest?!?!


Linking up with Courtney over at Click It Up a Notch.

You did a fantastic job of capturing different vantage points to tell your story! I really like the one you took above him with the water coming down! Glad you found an activity to keep him still for a few minutes :O)
