"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."

Ti from Alpharetta, United States

Is she drinking from it? I hope her parents stopped her in time....

It's good to be young and innocent, so you can enjoy all the fun things without any concern about potential "issues" that may spoil the moment...like me yelling: "Don't drink it!" :-)

6 Sep 2009 1:08am

@Ti: seems she is drinking ... now she is crying :))

the young and carefree. full of life. looking at this, I'm reminded by our labrador who really loves water. when someone's watering the plants, he'll bark at him/her, asking them to give him a shower :)) my, kids and dogs have some things in common: silly and lovely :)
