[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
If you are ever stuck for things to photograph, or ways to do it, just give your camera to a child, and new dimensions will open up. During a picnic on a sunny Sunday afternoon by the Mosel I lent my camera to our four year old grandchild who among other experiments had to try this out. Luckily I had my second camera ready.

I just learned that our dear friend Kathleen has passed away and therefore dedicate this photo, which is my first post in a while, to her. She will be missed throughout the TL community. We will do our live jam session at a later point, Kat.

Technically I cropped and adjusted contrast and colour balance before resizing.

Priceless pose you've captured here, Per... and true words, children have so much to learn and are generally so curious that they literally have an eye for just about everything. Maybe a somewhat lower PoV would have worked as well.

Kat, being fond of kids, would have loved this post, I'm sure... Nice tribute to one of the most loving and caring persons I ever met. TFS.
Why don't you post it to either of the themes ?

Like Kat always wrote, we could learn so much from children. If we only take the time to look.
I think she was enjoying the good weather so much so..why should we not take a picture of that then?
Good eye, must have a good teacher?
See you again Per, very relaxed shot!

Very cute and a lovely tribute to Kathleen. It is playful, just like Kat. B

Même sans la connaître, je partage cet instant tragique …
Un cœur s’arrête et l’émotion s’abat sur nous …
Je me joins aux recueillements photographiques
qui arrive de partout …
Tous plus beau les uns que les autres …
Bon voyage et encore merci pour ce beau sourire …
