california winter : a girl with animal ears

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 15 February 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.


While in Starbucks sipping a Caramel Macchiato, checking the photos from my afternoon's shoot, I noticed this mother and two girls. I thought the girl quite daring to wear that particular hat with the animal ears and tail, and even more daring to appear almost sleeveless in early February. But, we're having a lot of 'short-sleeve' weather this month. ;-)

Great composition of this mother and daughters, some how the hat looks at odds with the sleeveless top, perhaps she will grow up to be a famous fashion designer.

It's the sort of hat she'd need here at the moment. I type this as I look out at heavy frosts !

Dressed for all evenualities, t-shirt if hot, hat if cold...that's one way round the problem of variable weather!

that's the irony of youth (the only iron I know is the one in the kitchen - or is that just me being cynical now that I've turned 40!! :))

I think you're equally daring to photograph people in public like this. I love the colors which are at once bright and the beautiful pastels.
