Second Birthday, First Day of Spring

Uploaded: March 28, 2007 09:31:34


Shot outdoors on first day of spring, overcast morning (with some sprinkles). I originally cropped this way because mom was just a couple of steps away in the picture and I wanted to take her out, then I liked it anyways. Lord of the Rings action applied in PSCS.
