After I took this shot the little girl looked at what was in my hands and said, "what's that?" I told her it was my camera, and then I took a picture of her and showed it to her. She asked if she could take a picture of me. I handed her the camera and she took one of me. Then, one of her mom. Then, one of her sister. Then her mom said she should hand my camera back to me. Next, the girl's mom handed her a cell phone in camera mode, and the girl continued to take shots with the phone. I like to imagine someday she might grow up to be fine photographer.

A nice still life or studio shot, where I could control things and keep shooting and fine tuning, might have been a better strategy for a minimal editing challenge than trying to take a quick candid shot on a crowded moving train. But, I do like how this turned out.

Thanks for the comments, and I am really happy about the PH Blue.

love the big ole eyes, shame about the foreground a little distracting, but it may have been hard to avoid.
