"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."

✿ Anina ✿ from Auckland, New Zealand

Fantastic!!! You have captured the happiness and joy of this young girl superbly. The joys of being a child; they live life to the fullest. it's a pity as we, as adults, get older, we sometimes forget to just... "live like children". I really like the sepia tones and the blur adds that final touch. Well done
