Last night, Daddy and I were looking at different pictures that we’d taken over the last few weeks. When he saw that I had this as my computer desktop background picture, he fell in love with it all over again. He thought it would make the perfect header picture for the blog, and Claire and I agreed!
It’s a good autumn picture, because you can see the leaves in the background, and it really captures the typical playful mood around here.
No, it’s not a Shadow Portrait, but I’m sure we’ll do some more of those…either before or after the snow flies. We also found some other creative shots that may show up in a blog header in the future. We’re open to new ideas and whatever strikes our fancy, here at The Casual Perfectionist, so don’t be surprised if some other fun photos show up.
In the meantime, enjoy the new header!
Today is Day 3 of 30 in the NaBloPoMo Challenge! Check it out and/or join in the fun! A different blog header AND a post for Day 3? Two missions accomplished!

Last weekend, the weather was gorgeous. I was very fortunate to have a chance to play with Claire out in the leaves. (We also took some shadow portraits…)
She had a great time playing with the Linden. At one point, she stood up on the little shoots coming out at the base and said, “Look at how high up I am! I can see Daddy’s flagstones from way up here!”
Way Up High
Keep in mind…she was just mere inches off the ground.
Then, we decided to play Hide & Seek. She loves this game, and she still hasn’t mastered the “real” way to play, but that’s okay. I’m cherishing these moments that are so full of childlike naïveté. It won’t be long before she’ll have all the rules down, and then I’m sure she’ll give me a run for my money.
In the meantime, here are some good shots:
Hide & Seek
You can see Daddy’s progress on the rocks in the background.
She has spotted the surveillance...
She’s figured out that the camera is there…
...but she hasn't moved.
…but she still doesn’t realize I know where she is.
I see you! This is my favorite shot of the afternoon.
one... two... three...
And, then it was her turn to count and my turn to hide. And, if you must know, she told me to hide behind the tree. And why not? It had been the perfect place for her!
