Meet Baby ‘Dillon’—50% Balinese, 50% British and 100% Adorable (Photo of the Day)

Dillon--1/2 Balinese, 1/2 British baby

Today’s photo, shot on an iPhone, is of a lovely child—I Gede Dillon—whom I met here in Amed, Bali (Indonesia) several days ago. He’s 6 months old…and half Balinese, half British and 100% adorable!

Dillon--1/2 Balinese, 1/2 British baby

I’ve had so much fun getting to know him and photographing him that I just had to share one of his photos with you. He has a wide range of facial expressions and, at times, looks older and seems more mature than his actual age. He’s playful and sweet.

I must admit that I’ve grown rather attached to him over the past few days (and I don’t look forward to saying goodbye). It’s been a pleasure getting to know him–and I hope that, based on this photo, you can see why!

By the way…his mom, Emma, is from Yorkshire, England. And his dad, Dilly, is from Bali (Amed).

Note: The “I” in his name means “Mister” and the “Gede” means ‘first born.’ In Bali, many first-born children are known as ‘Wayan.’ Emma, however, chose the alternative Gede because she preferred it.

Your Thoughts/Experiences

Like photographing children? I do, but I’ll admit that it’s sometimes a challenge. They move fast! Dillon was tricky, but when he sat still, taking his photo was really fun.

        Glad my comments make you chuckle :)

        I tried to pinch the screen but couldn’t get a good grip for optimal cheek pinching.

      Hi, Emma. So happy that I met the two of you! PS: I hear him screaming right now–LOL.–through cyberspace. Maybe he’s teething? :)

      Thank you, Ana! I think you’re right–it does look like a drawing of some sort. I must give credit to the iPhone app I used–Noir. :)
