FOTD #4: Kiwi's Confusion

Apparently I'm liking these FOTD posts recently - but it's all worth it for the look on Kiwi's face when I come out of our bedroom looking a bit more scary dramatic than usual. This post is so-called because it plunged Kiwi into confusion and left him most perturbed and I could almost witness the interior mechanisms clunk into action as he parsed my face (rather like when there's a surprise filling in his sandwich he can't quite identify). Eventually, he decided he liked it. But he wasn't sure about the blue, or the purple, or the combination. For some reason this look worried Kiwi.

He thought he liked it, but then he also thought he didn't.

A definite Kiwi-worrying look.

I wish I had a picture of Kiwi looking worried, but I don't. He generally is quite good at not looking worried, mainly because he never worries.

I, however, loved it. I am a complete dodger of any notion of colour near my eyes, so this was like low-cal colour for me - still jazzy but not too RAAAAH-waving-your-knickers-in-the-air crazy.

Please excuse the strands of hair - I'm not going to win photographer of the year any time soon ;)
