A Stare to Remember

Uploaded: August 04, 2007


f/2, 1/1250s, 85mm lens

This photo was taken at the Arboretum in Madison, Wisconsin. I spent yesterday morning taking pictures of a sweet little girl and found a hose shed just next to the gardens that made a great backdrop. When I reviewed the photos later, this picture just stuck with me. It was a bright, colorful sunny day and she was giving me happy smiles just moments before! I converted it to B&W in photoshop and burned in the corners. Amazing how B&W completely changes the mood of this image.
