Those Days Are Gone


It used to be when I needed a set-up photograph of kids birding for use in a slide show, I'd ask my very own kids and they'd grab binocs and pose for the camera without batting an eye. Then they started asking for an appearance fee. Now I have to go through their agent to book them for a shoot.

I took this photo of Phoebe at the New River Birding Festival about 30 minutes before I used this very image in a presentation about kids and birds. It cost me a $2 and the use of my laptop for the afternoon.

What a wonderful shot of Phoebe. I am sure you'll be getting her statement in the mail. Hey, a girl's got to have shopping money!

Bill, if Phoebe gets any more gorgeous, you won't be able to afford her modeling fees. Take plenty of pics now.
