      There are some massive ones around there – he was fairly nervous of this one!

    roaaaaar! what a big lion! I bet he was intrigued but it wasnt he? x

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:21 am

      He was really nervous but wanted to see – I couldn’t get him to touch it though!

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:21 am

      They have a few dotted around the Trafford Centre in Manchester.

    Ooooh scary lion!!! Where was that? fab pic! x

    Hopefully the lion wasn’t too scary. Great capture.

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:41 am

      He was a bit reluctant but he had his Daddy holding him so wasn’t too bad 🙂

    ROOOOAAAARRR! Looks to me Like Z likes him!

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:22 am

      He kind of did for a bit but refused point blank to stand next to it!

    Ooooh way how cool x

  7. Nikki Thomas April 28, 2013 / 7:27 am

    Aw what a fab photo? Is Z scared or fascinated?

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:22 am

      A bit of both – he screamed when we tried to get him to pose next to it!

  8. Emma April 28, 2013 / 7:43 am

    A very regal lion, with a small person obviously not that worried about him! 😀

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:23 am

      He has his Daddy for protection so he was ok 🙂

    oooh i love this, brilliant photo xx

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:25 am

      He was – he kept wanting to touch it but a bit scared of it at the same time!

  10. Erica Price April 28, 2013 / 7:55 am

    Seeing that lion from Z’s perspective makes it look really impressive.

    ROOOAAARRR!! great statue

  12. Suzanne April 28, 2013 / 8:20 am

    Your little boy doesn’t seem phased, GREAT PIC.

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:26 am

      He did scream a bit initially but we coaxed him into getting up close to have a look!

  13. deborabora April 28, 2013 / 8:43 am

    Hear me Rooooooaaaaaar

  14. Michelle @ Bod for tea April 28, 2013 / 8:46 am

    Love how you’ve shot this from his level so the lion looks MASSIVE – very impressive isn’t he!

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:27 am

      He is – there are a few impressive statues like that dotted around the place.

  15. Pinkoddy April 28, 2013 / 8:49 am

    How brave – looks so scary to be so close.

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:27 am

      He was very brave about it – then kept telling us afterwards that he’d met a lion!

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:28 am

      Ooh nope – its the Trafford Centre near Manchester:)

  16. sam April 28, 2013 / 10:39 am

    That is one large lion! x

  17. Karen April 28, 2013 / 11:28 am

    That’s a lovely photo! Big lion! 🙂

  18. @ADadCalledSpen April 28, 2013 / 2:48 pm

    Is that the statue that represents The Premier League or have I just been watching too much football recently?

    Great photo.

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:30 am

      Haha – thats something my OH would say 🙂

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:33 am

      We went for lunch to the Trafford Centre – up near Manchester

  19. Mary April 28, 2013 / 9:02 pm

    Ha! Love it. Little Z doesn’t seem intimidated at all by the ma-housive lion.

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:30 am

      He loved it …eventually! He didn’t want to go anywhere near it at first!

  20. helloitsgemma April 28, 2013 / 9:05 pm

    I love the side long glance – tentative.

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:29 am

      Bet you’ve passed it lots of times …its the Trafford Centre! 😀

  21. HPMcQ April 28, 2013 / 9:56 pm

    raaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrr fantastic lion, little one looks most impressed x

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:33 am

      He was! He actually then wanted to jump in the fountain behind it…we didn’t let him 🙂

  22. LauraCYMFT April 29, 2013 / 11:56 am

    The Trafford Centre? I’m jealous! I love it there. Great lion too!

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:31 am

      Yes!!! 🙂 I think you’re the only person to have guessed it!

  23. ghostwritermummy April 30, 2013 / 6:21 pm

    I know exactly where you are! My kids hate it there!!
    xx

    • Notmyyearoff May 2, 2013 / 8:32 am

      I think after our Saturday trip my OH hates it there too ….was definitely not the best time to take Little Z!

  24. TheBoyandMe May 6, 2013 / 10:29 pm

    That’s a good one, he definitely looks in (r)are there!

    Thanks for linking up to 365.

  25. TheBoyandMe June 3, 2013 / 9:20 am

    There’s definitely a little bit of caution there isn’t there? Great shot though, can’t believe how grown up he’s becoming!
