It is not the photographer's fault that the micro dude is going through a phase where he kind of smirks at the camera. We were glad to see at least one image where he looks neutral, even perhaps noble, since the smiley preschooler that we know sometimes goes into hiding before strangers.
Then we looked onwards in the packet and discovered that the vendor had indeed decided to pose our child against our wishes in the faux autumn leaves with a fake tire swing. His expression says it all.
Perhaps he is recalling the apartheid-era South African lynching practice of "necklacing" opponents with tires.
Anyhow, it wasn't quite as hilarious as the tear-on-the-cheek preschool pictures from Ol' Iron Eyes Q, but still good for a chuckle. I'm a veritable gold mine for photographers who snap pictures that I love, so I wish them better luck for the spring photo session.
