Picture of the Week 40 – Little Girl

Canon EOS 5D ,Canon EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 Macro II USM
1/60s f/8.0 at 40.0mm iso800

I was at a party, and someone brought his 16 month old daughter. She was definitely cute, but also shy, and quite self conscious.

In order to get a picture of her, I needed to catch her off guard. The dog provided the perfect opportunity, but it was a very fleeting moment. Just a second or two after I took this shot, she looked at me with a “what are you doing?” look. I think she probably heard the shutter sound.

What I love about this photo is the multitude of connections: The girl is holding on to her daddy, he’s petting the dog, and she’s almost touching her, too (the dog). Finally, of course, the dog is connecting with … right, the food. Well, at least mentally… 🙂
