Pink Saturday...the elusive Caralyn.

Hello & welcome to another Pink Saturday...hosted by Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound . For today's post, I wanted to share my efforts to capture my granddaughter, Caralyn (she's wearing pink...she's always wearing pink! ) on film. She's not camera shy...she just enjoys messing w/ me. ;o) Every time she sees me point teh camera @ her, she turns her head & her hair covers her face; as you'll see in picture after picture, all taken on the same afternoon. I say she's like trying to capture a shot of Bigfoot & she really is about as elusive.

"nyah, nyah, nyah...you can't catch me!"

And the game is on!

"Not this time, Honey!"

Almost had her!

The little tease!

Dang! She's quick!!!

Missed again!

And again!


Now she's just toying w/ me!

Got her!!!! And ironically, this shot of her reminds me so much of that infamous Bigfoot photo. LOL Doesn't it? Or is just because I spent a couple of hours trying to capture her?

She's good natured @ having been caught though!

And then I really scored!

Even better!
My favorite...it made all my efforts worthwhile! Gonna share a little secret though...the only way I was able to capture her was to wait until she was wayyyy off & then zoom in w/out her knowledge. ;o)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend...we've been cool'ish, for the season, this past week & it sure has been nice. Happy Pink Saturday!

I enjoyed each and every picture and laughed out loud as you persevered. Very clever of Honey to use a zoom lens!! Caralyn is just a little doll.

Ooh I love this Pink Saturday post. With the way that you captured her pictures you could almost make a flip book with the pics. She is moving in motion and all. Great post. Thanks so much for sharing. Her personality just shines through each pic. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country Hugs, Sherry

Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year...sigh.

With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥

What a fun post. My sons & nephews all do the same thing and they are teenagers and/or adults. It's always a game trying to get their photo.

I could just imagine you chasing her with your camera. I was laughing at each picture of her back or her hair-covered face. She is such a cutie. Worth the wait to see that pretty smile. She has beautiful hair too. laurie
