This One's for Zoomer

You see, it all began when...

I sent Zoomer images of the dresses I'd bought SugarPlum for her birthday, and she -- like I -- fell in love with the 3-piece ensemble I'd piggled together, nearly by happenstance.  A hat.  At that point, I was merely looking for a little summer hat to add to the potpourri of gifts.  When I cabbaged onto a hat too cute to pass up, it begged for a top and denim skirt as companions, for no other of the dresses I'd bought could receive such a topper. 

Seeing the image of the outfit lain upon the table for photographing, Zoomer was quick to say I must do photos of the little darlin' wearing it.  And I'd have to do some in sepia.  What a wonderful idea, and I immediately thought of that ancient tree, with its trunk ensconced in gnarly, old, fibrous vines.  Perfect backdrop for the dreamy photo session.

Well, I wasn't going to strip the little kid down on the occasion of our little party, re-dress her, and march her to the tree.  So I decided I'd just make a special request that the outfit accompany the plum to our house one day soon, so I could do my amateur (read: ignorant and inept) magic with the camera.

Heh-heh.  Her Mama2 sent me photos this evening, taken at an event near their home, and there was that plum, wearing the subject outfit.

Well, that sour face wasn't exactly in my dream.

Anything else here to work with?
Uh, o k a y ...

You know, I'm not feelin' it.

Let's do this one:

Dream come true, Zoomer?
I didn't think so.

That's it.
Get the little kid down here.
She's going to the tree!

That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness.  ~Colossians 1:10, 11

Cute!!! For some reason, she looks like a baby giraffe in the last it just me?

Uh, no. :o) Not exactly what I had in mind.

Methinks the Plum looks more a Prune in this photo session. *L* Yes, to the tree she goes!

Well, when I saw that last photo, my first thought was fishface!

Son3 said, "She looks like a catfish in this one."

Now, you've added baby giraffe, Loo. With that prompt, yes, I can see it. You have me kinda warming-up to that goofy photo.

Zoomer, you got that prune thing right on.
