My daughter ..... my heart. The wisdom of the law silences her voice, as it does with many children, during a divorce. In this case, the divorce was between her mother and I. She had so much to say and yet, because of her age, no opinion the law would recognize.

Though this may raise some hackles, it illustrates how children are silenced. It's has to change, they have a voice.

Perhaps it is the parent's ears that cannot hear rather than the mouth that is silenced. Either way, the photo provokes thought.

Thanks Crystal. No, it wasn't fruit rollups but that would have been a great idea. It was tape that got "edited" a wee bit. I appreciate your kind words.

Aww! The border style isn't working for me but that's okay. Good concept, great lighting, great expression on her face, and it's off center too! 9

The title doesn't really do this one justice. Beautiful image, looks great, nice softness, yet perfect sharpness in the right places

I hope you took some without the tape too, because this is a lovely portrait.
