It's Abby again. I was going to finish the challenge by capturing moments of strangers -- but I didn't get out today, and I couldn't resist capturing Abby totally savoring the sun and the water. To me, it's like she is just soaking up childhood and loving it :)

This is so excellent on so many levels...

One doesn't have to be her grandmother to appreciate this joy and pureness.

I know I've commented before... I just love to look at this. It makes me smile. :)

Wow, Sandy. You just have that unattainable 'it' that makes photographs into perfection of memories.

this takes me right back to running around in the rain in my swimsuit, shrieking at the thunder & building a dam in the gutter--it's that wet hair that does it, & the beautiful rain. Love it!

Amazing shot! Love it and your ability to capture the rain is great. Trip down a rainy memory lane.

I love this in b/w. The composition of barely being able to see her face gives this a feeling of release for her. It's almost... I don't know how to describe it, but I feel it when I see her here. Emotive, absolutely, but so much more.

Bravo.
These are some of the best kind of memories to be preserved forever.
I love kids playing in the water. I think your horizon is a bit off though.

hehehe - you KNOW I'm just kidding.

Gorgeous shot!

This is just darling, Sandy. The abandon with which she is receiving sun and water - it's precious. I LOVE the BW treatment and the tight crop!!! Wow.

I really like the contrast of the kinetic, frenetic droplets contrasted with the total mindful concentration of this beautiful child. Wonderful job.
