She has discovered the curtains I bought for $3.00 at the thrift shop on Saturday, the lovely sheer that makes every girl feel beautiful to touch and explore and dance in and wear, the beginning of her lovely wedding dream of a dress that twirls, a veil that softens all the light you see. And one lovely tear rests melancholy on her cheek in this in-between moment, my almost-accidental capture. I'm not sure why the tear is here, perhaps a leftover from her decided "Mommy come now" after I had removed the gate between us; she didn't realize yet that she could reach me if she wanted to.
Hers is the photo I keep re-finding today, so here she is, shared soft with you today, number 44/365.
I am also linking this over at Mother May I for My Best Shot Monday; even though this is today's shot, I would consider it my best shot of the last week, though this one definitely runs a close second! I chose this shot for my best shot because it totally captures all the elements I love in photography: lovely light, soft, innocent reality, a depth of emotion, alive. My best photos are the ones that take my own breath away. What it does to the rest of the world? Well, that's up to you!
