Posted for the pigeons forum. This little girl had discovered that she could scare the pigeons and make them fly away, and she seemed utterly delighted by her new-found power!

A charming image. Bless the little girl!

Thanks, purdey. I'm glad you like it. I was quite charmed by her!

The pure joy of childhood is shining through in that beguiling photo of yours Marilyn! :D

Marilyn Whiteley on December 22, 2007

Thanks, Pam and John. Alas, we become guarded later on, and don't often show that spontaneous joy even if we feel do it! Cheers, Marilyn

Hi Marilyn**! I just love this shot! Movement, joy, and great color combination. A great capture!

Marilyn Whiteley on December 26, 2007

Again thanks, Roger. Ordinarily I wouldn't cut somebody off in the middle, but I loved the joy in this shot, and I couldn't find any way to crop out the boy, so I decided that I had to had to accept the fact: I either had a cut-off person or no photo at all. The photo won!
