“The politician is an acrobat; he keeps his balance by doing the opposite of what he says.”

TIME: 6:52 PM
PLACE:  The backyard
SUBJECT: MonkeyBoy

Here is MonkeyBoy doing a handstand.  He was doing handstands, flips and cartwheels in the yard and wanted me to take a picture of him.  I must have taken over 200 shots to try and capture this boy.  I'm still not very happy with this shot.  All I can say is thank goodness for digital cameras and Photoshop!

You are right to say thank goodness for digital cameras.. I´ll never miss them

I have two wild boys, anytime in action...to shot photos of them is much better and cheaper with a digital cam.

Dot O - Yes indeed, this is my child who crawled at 4 months, stood at 6 months and was running at 9 months.

Secret Agent Mama - I hoped that at least one of the 200 would work!

Ev - Thank you!

bentonflocke - Digital is the way to go with those boys, I couldn't imagine paying for some of the shots of grass I took. ;)

Sara G - Thanks!

He's good! Those action shots are nearly impossible to get - you did good too!

Mari - I love my continous shooting mode! It comes in handy for pictures like this.

Well, I didn't see the other 200, but I think you did pretty darn good on this one! :)
