One Word Photo Challenge: Child

One Word Photo Challenge (hosted by Jennifer Nichole Wells) : Child

We came back from D.C. three days ago, and I noticed this photo challenge. I have never participated Jennifer’s challenge before, but the theme of child brings a smile to my face.




The last photo was just for fun. K drools a lot. First, it wasn’t easy for me to chase him around and focus on one tiny drop of drool. Then, in order to get the light effect that I wanted, I had to shoot from a certain angle (before he moved). So I chased him; I circled around him… I am pleased with how it turned out (and I was exhausted). 😉


Thanks for visiting my blog.

    That last shot is brilliant, Helen. Your running around efforts paid off, and I’m guessing you didn’t mind being exhausted 😀 Kids these days can be so energetic and it is hard to keep up with them. But looks like you can. Well done.

    Hi Helen, I got the photo that you edited. Very cool! Thank you for showing me what could be done. Sorry for being late, I don’t check the gmail often at all, and it not even on my iPhone. Thank you, again. 🙂
