A is for Apple

I am embarking on a major Zelda project. Usually at this time of year I am making a new Zelda calendar... and maybe I'll do that next. (I have my theme determined - a set of "Most Wanted" posters featuring the Z-girl.) This year, in honor of Zuperfliegen we're doing an alphabet book and maybe a counting book... though Zelda and I have only figured out how to count to 5.

A must be for Apple. Right?

However, Zelda finds this assignment to be very, very difficult because I do not want her to EAT the apple. As far as I know she's never eaten an apple before, but it took very little time to work out that apples are tasty and the mechanics of apple eating. (It is easiest if Ann will hold the apple for you.) So, I've taken 2 or 3 dozen apple photos and haven't got quite the one I like. Our problem is primarily with camera focus. There's just too much movement in an apple camera shoot.

Here are my top choices. (I feel like I have to move on or we won't finish in time.)

Please feel free to weigh in with your opinion.

B is for Bear, up next. I anticipate we'll have many of the same problems.

I vote for photo 4, Zelda looking mournfully at the camera with the half eaten apple, although I also really liked the licking apple photo too.

Thanks for your imput, Amdrew. I like the licking one, but it isn't in very good focus. Thimk I'll go with #4.
