Vrystaat: Jenniker Kids

Please view this image large, thanks.

The harsh reality that my flight bach to the UK is on Wednesday is fast dawning on me, and so far I have only managed about four sessions of value. This is not even close to what I planned, but with my house that needs some maintenance and the other beachy summer things that require factor 20+ it will have to do. If it gets cloudy over the weekend, I might be able to fit in another trip or two. Fingers crossed.

I have shown some images taken of the Jenniker family's caravan extension in the previous uploads.
This image of Katelyn clutching her piggy-bank and Klasie was shot in the one-roomed timber shack that functions as kitchen and bedroom - their main dwelling.
This seems to be Katelyn's preferred pose - no interference from me. In the following frames I asked her to lift her head, and that looked good, but I thought that I shall submit this one which is the way she likes to look at the camera.
The rug has not been replaced over the gap in the floor - that's where one of my feet and an accompanying tripod leg dissapeared into, to the horror and acute embarrasement of Erika their mother (and myself). Needless to say that Klasie at the pram just about fell over laughing, which was re-assuring, as he never uttered a word during the two sessions that I photographed this family.

Taken in available light at uprated ISO. Indirect light from the open door behind me.

I love everything about this, particularly her dusty feet with her toes wrapped around the chair leg. 1st class.
