During my travels to SoCal. This was during a get together with 21_F.gif melethia, 21_F.gif hihosilver, 21.gif dtallakson, and 21_N.gif tanguera. What an awesome group of people! I had a marvelous time!

(My husband had meetings at caltech, so I tagged along. :) )

I've already commented, but I'm back to say that each time I've opened the home page since then my eye gets drawn to this image and the sense of lightness and wonder, and joy, it conveys. Thank you.

Such a brilliant shot, an essay of this would have give Clive a run for his money.

Congratulations. I'm seeing this for the first time only now. I'm admiring how much this picture profits by having the girl heading out of the frame, rather than the more conventional into the frame. I always admire the unconventional, even if it's subtle rather than confounding. Sometimes even more so. Thank you.

My fave of the challenge! Possibly influenced by the fact that I have a granddaughter who's close to walking, and I can't wait to see her express joy like this. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy :-). Little bit of motion blur, beautiful reflection, and ... joy.
