A little friend, aged two; 30 Aug 2011.
Who is she? She is the younger daughter of friends, and we love her – and regard her friendship – very dearly. People discuss the really worthwhile things in life, the things that life is all about, and our friendship with this little girl – and her big sister too – fits squarely into that category. And I am doubly blessed because not only am I allowed totally unrestricted photographic access to these two sisters, but their parents have no problems at all with my publishing the resulting images here – not such common attitudes in England these days!.
And why is this image very special to me? It is unposed; it is simple, candid and completely uncontrived. Its is just a little girl – she was two at the time – glancing round at me with a perhaps questioning look. I can’t get enough of it.
