Yes. He really did sit in that metal basket (made to gather oysters from the ocean) and start throwing the wine corks out.


But... BUT... he's SO cute, we let him do it for an hour. :) And we picked up after him.

When we gave him an empty oyster basket, he started moving them from the full basket to the empty one.


WHAT CHILD has the patience and attention span to do this for over an hour at his age??!

Only a child who is the son of a person who used to be married to the son of someone who used to be married to my step brother, but was never adopted into our family. :D

My "niece". :D I love her.

And him.

Isn't he ADORABLE?!

And... he's fearless.

I like that about a person. ;)

I think I'm a bit fearless to enter this "artsy edit" in a DPC challenge.

So be it.

Hahaha! Love the title. I'm sure the prep work for this shot was arduous, *hick*!

Although the lighting and the comp are top notch,the distortion is a bit offputting. The ultrawide makes the entire image appear as if you are not squared off in front of the subject - the right side pulls away and seems to curve up.

Anything more in the frame would have killed the effect. Good job.
