To Be a Child Again

In October I was asked to photograph a Community Picnic/Fair.I was walking around the fair grounds when I saw this little girl. I was so drawn to her! She had no idea I was photgraphing her while she was having the time of her life at the bubble machine. While watching her I couldn't help but think how nice it would be to be so carefree again..to laugh and play with total abandon..to be a kid again, if only for a moment...no bills, no health issues... I can remember a time when blowing bubbles made me this happy too..

I totally echo your sentiments! This is a precious and pretty photo of what is so short lived and becomes more difficult to find as we get older. This photo is worth a million words and should be entered in any photo contest. When I see kids play without a care I'm often reminded about my own childhood. I blow bubbles with my niece and play on the swings with her and it makes me happy, you just have to find the time and not let yourself settle into a set pattern. I love your gallery! Great job.
