Belly Down, Heads Up! The Elbow Pose

It finally occurred to LOST GALLERY some time ago that this pose is a category! There are a few in LOST GALLERY and several have been seen in other collections.

But the problem is: what to call it. What do you call a pose like this? Perhaps it supposed to be some sort of Glam pose but it is a bit silly too.

For now LOST GALLERY will call it,
"Belly Down, Heads up"
or maybe
"The Elbow Pose"
but any suggestion will be entertained.

THE KIDS Lesson one.
It is always a mystery
how a photograph of any
of these precious children
could end up lost
or abandoned.
Here are a few.
You will probably say
"Ooh..." at least once.

  1. Oh indeed! A category! It was a popular pose, wasn't it? I know I have some, but of course have no idea where they are. I'm thinking "Belly's Down, Heads Up" works. My first reaction has always been "bottom's up."

  2. Thanks! I puzzled over this one a long time. I have been holding off doing a page of them until I found a good name for it. Still not sure this is the best but it'll have to do now.
