What a cute little one - Great Capture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Yvonne. I could gobble him up.
haha. it's amazing how quickly interest and excitement turns to boredom and thoughts of cookies.
great shot, ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I saw the lady (Mommie?) hand him the cookie, Seraphine, and how he grabbed it but then immediately became distracted while putting it to his mouth. It was precious. I think knowing it was in his hand was enough for him at the moment.

This is a lovely shot of childhood innocence Ginne
Ginnie Hart: It is indeed, Chris. I hope he imternalizes it. smile
He looks to be well wrapped up against the cold Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: They all were, Chad, which was part of the fun. The cold did not keep any of them away!
Yummy, he loves his snack...
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Chantal, he does. smile

Ginnie Hart: HA! I think so, JIM. Don't you love it?! smile
Delightful Ginnie

Sweet little boy. The jewel-like colours are entrancing.
Ginnie Hart: Most of the kids I "caught" were on the sidelines, Ingrid, so I was really glad I looked at a float passing by to get this little guy. I was entranced by the colors, too. Thanks.

he looks well rugged up under his costume
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Aussie. It was a very cold day, so everyone was bundled up. I actually had to go home after my hands got too cold.

mmmm cookie! he looks too engrossed in it to be paying attention to who's watching him lol cute shot!!!
Ginnie Hart: He grabbed the cookie when it was handed to him, Elaine, but then when he put it to his lips, he just posed like that for a few seconds. It was so cute. I think he realized he was being watched. grin
again showed me a very good portrait, very innocent expression of the child, well done Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Those children were being good at being children, Fabrizio. It thrilled me. Grazie.
By the time he has finished his biscuit he shall have crumbs and fluff from his mittens stuck to his lips! Great capture again Ginniesmile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Linda. Thanks for the smile. smile
What is it about kids & cookies?

So glad you captured this image, Ginnie, before he had a chance to finish it. Love the heart on his toque; he's a another cutie pie.
Ginnie Hart: It was a pure delight for me, Beverly, all of it. Thanks. smile

Your title reminds me of a joke my father-in-law tells. He says newlyweds tell each other that and then about a year later they wish they had smile

What a beautiful child and again with the colors.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Be careful what you ask for, right, Sherri?! grin I love it. And thanks for the smile.

Oh mehn m scared of him!!! smile) That cookie most definitely was scarfed down by this cute kid! I would hate to be the cookie right about then!
Ginnie Hart: It was so cute, Yinks, because he grabbed the cookie when it was handed to him, but once he put it to his lips, he just hesitated before actually eating it. I loved it.
A great shot Ginnie, there are times when I could eat my little granddaughter if you know what I mean, she is gorgeous at the moment.
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Brian. I know all about grandchildren! We would have had them first if we had known they'd be so fun! grin
I want to touch his cheek, and his blanket; both are so invitingly soft. Beautiful child and photo, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Patrushka. We both can eat himn up together. smile
Nicely composed candid portrait with those superb saturated but subdued colours. Especially the cheeks.
Ginnie Hart: I simply had to keep the colors on this one, George. Thanks!

looks like he didn't care much for the parade.. as long as he gets his nom noms, he's okay.. grin
Ginnie Hart: He probably had no clue what was going on, Rian...especially since he was on one of the floats going by. So many people. Why, Mommy??

He's a charmer, all right! First you, then us... smile
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Larry. That's what I thought. smile
Gorgeous portrait Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Pam.
Love those rosy cheeks!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Caroline. So do I. smile
La imagen tiene una textura y colores impresionante.
Ginnie Hart: Muchas gracias, Bernardo.
ok, share the cookie, kid.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe he doesn't know about sharing yet?
haha, i didn't visualize him as being distracted from the cookie. he looks like there is nothing else in the world at this moment *but* the cookie.
and ya, i can telate, food sometimes is a great comfort.
Ginnie Hart: It's not only a primal need...food...but as you say, Seraphine, a great comfort. Sitting down to eat with Astrid every day is also one of my most soulful moments of the day!
So cute ! a great portrait !!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Zeb.
What I like most about this is teh beatuful colours - greens and reds - the light is also very nice... smile

I remember eating with my knitted gloves on...thanks for waking that picture to life again smile
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. The colors and the memories. I like that, Aksel. Thank you. And happy birthday again! :
heh, i like how he is all bundled up. nicely observed!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Charles. It was so cold that day I had to go home to get my hands warm. But it didn't keep the kids from having fun outside!

He's got some rosy cheeks there - must be chilly, but he looks braced for the cold. And hungry...he looks hungry. Well done!
Ginnie Hart: My hands were so cold, Toni, I had to go back home to get them warm. So it amazed me how these kids were outside totally enjoying it all. Thanks.
