"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."

Super cute, we would say pacifier instead or sucker, i was looking for a lollipop. LOL!

7 Nov 2011 12:17pm

klausz from Kufstein, Austria

... it is on the one hand, to use the safe hiding place between the skirts and on the other hand to be very curious, but not leaving the "safe haven"! and when nothing helps, the sucker remains the last resort!
well seen mariana!

7 Nov 2011 12:47pm

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

This little one looks lost in the world of adults; but safe while holding Mom's hand! Beautiful colours and framing here Mariana! Well seen and captured! ;-)

Heart melting cuteness! I love this gorgeous colour tonality and the patterns, with that little angel face and a nice contrast of ages with the older woman's arms there. You have the lightning quick eye of a master, lady M.

7 Nov 2011 5:49pm

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I love the way this has been composed to make this seem like the girl has been brought into this huge world of ours. Almost seems like a daunting feeling at such a young age. But she stands out nicely as "pretty in pink."

She seems a small version of the adults on either side of her. As a side note, I think their shoes are interesting. Are these Amish ladies?
