Heather Harpel June 16, 2005

That is so cute! I love the perspective of her riding away from the camera with the bear on the back of the trike, it's wonderful! The effects look really great, perfect for the feel of the photo I think. Great job with both the photo and the editing! #1476936

Mata Patan June 16, 2005

This shot remembers me my childhood!
I had the same bike and a similar teddy bear which is still on my bed even now that I am married with two kids!!!!!!!!!!
Very very nice!!!! #1478711

Lori S. Aschbrenner June 16, 2005

Thank you, Mata! That's the same reason why we bought the trike for her... because I had one just like it when I was her age. The Teddy bear was a gift from her dad after he had been away for several weeks when she was about a year old. It's been her Velveteen Rabbit ever since (let's hope I never have to burn it like in the story!). #1478722

Shelly A. Van Camp level-classic June 16, 2005

OHHHHH THIS IS SOOOOO SWEET! Love it!!!!!! She's a doll. Shelly #1479399

Marvin H. Gohlke Jr. June 17, 2005

This is in my top 2 or 3 favorites of yours. I love the colors and the soft touch you added. And catching her in "mid-pedal" as she is riding away. And then my eyes are drawn to her precious little teddy bear. This could be anyone's little girl. That's what makes this such a great shot. Hopefully we'll see it again. #1481780

Rhonda Smith June 17, 2005

Beautiful... this is a wonderful candid. Even the bottom of her feet are dirty .. attesting to the hard day she's having playing :O) I used to say you could tell how much fun the kids were having by how dirty they got.. the dirtier.. the more fun ! #1484000

Lori S. Aschbrenner June 18, 2005

Thank you, Shelly, Marvin & Rhonda!
Rhonda, this daughter of mine is almost ALWAYS dirty. Her feet are never clean because she refuses to wear shoes! #1484604

Kerby Pfrangle June 18, 2005
