Probably a shoehorn, but I had a few others which didn't quite work out.

Many might not pick this as mine, since it's winter over here now, but we had a warmish winter day when I took this. I love the innocence of childhood, and the adventurous spirit that children have!

One of my favorite type of newspaper assignments is to capture "wild art", which is defined as "Stand-Alone, Feature Shot, Enterprise art are found moments that are intended to be realistic slices of everyday life" (definition taken from this glossary). These are typically images that caption themselves, not needing a lot of words to get their point across. For this challenge, I'm scoring images as whether I'd like to see them on the front page of a paper as feel good wild art. If I don't think they would make the paper, I'm then asking myself, "does it make me feel good?" If it doesn't do much for me, well then, oh well...

I'm sure there's a picture there somewhere, but the processing kills it for me. As I can't really make out what she's got in her hands, I can't really connect with her moment, which leaves me out. Without any connection, there's nothing to give me any "feel good".
