Nikki McDonald level-classic 1/17/2008 11:47:43 AM

This is just a wonderful capture. I saw it in Editor's Picks the other day but too late--just as I was clicking the reload button. And you all know that when you do that, there is no going back. I looked and looked and couldn't find it and then today a friend found it and shared it with a group I'm in. You may have photo-shopped the headset in--no matter. The expression is absolutely priceless and the earphones are perfect for it. So sorry we have to wait until the end of February to see whether this goes all the way--sure hope it does. #5354042

Barbara Helgason 1/17/2008 12:19:16 PM

Wow, thanks everyone, I was wondering why I got so many comments on this picture today, but it must be because someone shared it with their group. When I captured Sophie shaking her head, I thought the picture was a waste until I saw it on the monitor and I noticed she looked like she was listening to music. So for those of you who were wondering, yes, the earphones were photographed separately and added later in photoshop. #5354201

Stan L. Shoemaker 1/17/2008 12:35:36 PM

My daughter Kara sent this link for me to see and she is right, it has to be one of the most adorable pics I have ever seen #5354278

Sue McLeod 1/17/2008 1:54:42 PM

Sooo great Barbara!! A great shot & then the earphones just take it to the next level!! :) #5354549

Kara L. Hendricks level-classic 1/17/2008 6:18:31 PM

I'm the one who shared it with my yahoo group Barbara...:) I even sent it to family... This is so wonderful.. I have NO DOUBT you'd make a MILLION as a poster!!!! #5355640

Kara L. Hendricks level-classic 1/17/2008 6:20:48 PM

Nikki.. The EFP's is where I saw it too... And I DID sit there and hit reload till I found it again... 355 reloads later...:)

What can I say, it was worth it... I loved the thumbnail and I love it FULL SIZE... Made it a fav.

Barbara... This has my vote for GP!!! #5355651

Barbara Helgason 1/17/2008 8:53:08 PM

Thanks Kara, I'm flattered ... a million sure would be nice! :) #5356115

Kara L. Hendricks level-classic 1/18/2008 11:28:03 AM
