I was asked by my good friend Erni to help photograph her son Geordi's 1 year old birthday party on 19th November 2005. Qualification for this event, was that you had to be a baby, or parents of a baby :-)




Geordi has tight hold of his present, though he probably doesnt know what to do with it!





Another present hes not sure of what to do with!





Eh?.... whats that you are pointing at me?










Geordi behaving himself in front of Grandma!





Hehehe, Im going to make your camera lens all oily!





Hehehe, Im going to make your camera lens all oily aswell!

Geordi looks determined to climb this slide...

- The End -

To pre-empt any technical questions, the gear I used was :

Canon EOS 5D digital camera
Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 lens
Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens (1 photo)
Transcend 4Gb CF card
BP511A battery

All photos shot in simultaneous Raw+jpeg mode but worked with the jpegs during post processing, and edited with Adobe Photoshop7.
