    While sitting in a piazza in Venice having a quick lunch, I saw this little girl getting ready for a trip on her roller blades and just had to grab my camera (the Sigma 70-300mm was on, anyway) and capture her. All that pink on her is sooo very much "little girl pink", and I liked the sight.

    I don't think it is boring at all. Being the father of 2 girls, this shot really made me smile. I love how simple it is, just like young children.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    heh heh... She's even painted her finger nails pink. :)

    I know she's looking down at something, but I think if her eyes had been more visible it can make the viewer feel a little more connection with the image... does that make sense?

    It sure makes sense. There was no connection. She didn't know I was aiming my zoom lens at her. She was more than 100m away from where I was sitting. I had only spotted all the PINK out of the side of my eye, said to my husband "lean over - MUST get that scene!", and took her photo a mere instant before she put herself onto her feet (and rollers) and took off. So true fact is: she is in the process of wanting to get up, that's why she's already looking at where she's going to place her hand next to helf herself up. A very, very spur-of-the-moment snap.

    ah... that makes sense now. I thought she was maybe playing with stones (a source of endless entertainment for me when i was a child :) ) or something else on the floor

    My how I wish I could say that with the non-chalance you did...

    I really like that photo.

    What really catches my eye is the ancient engraving around the base of the fountain. I think about the artisan who carved that (maybe hundreds of years ago) and what he would think of that cute little girl sitting on it with pink roller blades and pink fingernails. How many little girls have sat in that same spot on that same fountain over the centuries?

    I'm not accusing you of this, Corinna, but I think sometimes Europeans don't really notice the history that is around them.

    I love the candidness of the shot. I probably would have desaturated the brick wall behind her though. I think it competes for attention.

    very nice shot. i like the brick wall as the background, with no people walking behind her. it makes it seem like it is just her and her pink roller blades
     
  11. Very nice shot. I love kids' determination... I would not want to rollerblade on cobblestone, but try explaining that to a child :)
