this is my daughter-
literally all three pix were taken in a row- not exactly in order shown per-say.... but hey- she was -distracted- she is almost 4 years old and very easily distracted by anything in her environment- which is why i chose the title... i was not taking photos with this challenge in mind- but as i was flipping through them and editing- I felt this fit. if it fails miserably its my own fault - i own that.

I'm sure it will get pummeled she was wearing her fall coat and its sleeves are in the way- but I was taking pix of her outside and she has been sick so heavy coat is season appropriate for where I live according to the weather and my child's health. I cropped close because I love her features-and expressions, the subtle changes that are hard to see from a far away crop- but if i cropped any closer- all you see is fingertips... so... eh- it is what it is! take it or leave it..

all three images were shot in sequence 11/6/2010 approx 2:30pm

I scored poorly a previous entry for the lack of variety in captions but I must say this one simple eyes say it all entry grasped at my ribs with love and wow-ness. Top 10 for me. Winner of my heart entry. Thanks
