My little tea party...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 21 January 2009 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

This is the third of a number of shots I took Jan. 17th, at our local Civil War Reenactment.
A fellow photographer bumped me just as I 'shot' but I saved it anyway because I love the way she braces her knees against the box.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/125 second F/5.6 ISO 100 75 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Precious! Rosy cheeks in her little pinafore as happy as can be serving tea to her (imaginary) friends.
You captured the essence of this little girls charm.

tyan from Singapore, Singapore

oh she is so adorable! Wanting to play with the set yet perhaps not wanting to dirty her socks and knees?:)

@tyan: I think she is pretty accustomed to sleeping outdoors in a tent w/her parents on these weekends and she was obviously comfortable! :D

Marie-Hélène Ammor from Casablanca/Paris, Morocco

It is wonderful to see that ! She is so serious and the scene is superb ...a series of great shots !! I love them !

Its a shame that magic imagination of childhood,cannot be carried over into adulthood,I think it might be a better world..Well captured Judy. :>)

@Jeff: I couldn't agree with you more, Jeff ... we should all cherish the child within us and maybe in a way we do, with our cameras!
Thank you.

Eleftheria from Athens, Greece

Very cute!

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

As pretty as expected, and yes it's that dainty movement with her knees that makes the photo, you are brilliant..

21 Jan 2009 3:33pm

@Lorraine: The photo was there for the taking ... I'm happy I saw it!

Susan from Pompano Beach, FL, United States

What a great moment you caught.... this is indeed a superb shot!!!

@Susan: Thank you, Susan ... I appreciate your comment.

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

I am glad you saved and posted this one. She is tooooo cute!

Congrats on your 50th year of marriage...what a great idea to post photos from throughout the years...I will have to go back and start looking through them.

@Laurie: Thank you very much, Laurie ... both for your photo comment and your best wishes.

MaryB from Staffordshire, United Kingdom

I remember when most little girls played this way, precious times. It's so lovely to see, in our tech age.
A wonderful shot Judy.

@MaryB: I remember my own simple childhood and how I cherished it with our daughter ... times now have changed. :(
Thank you, Mary.

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

So cute, Judy. And she certainly looks like a child from that era.

22 Jan 2009 4:19am

@Michael Skorulski: She has very loving, caring parents ... and the tea set gets packed along with their tent!

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

OH my! What a beautiful photo! Love love love it Judy! I have to find some "old looking" clothes for my girls and do a photo shoot to capture that kind of image. Gives me some good ideas for spring - can't wait! Keep your eyes open! (grin)

22 Jan 2009 7:12am

@Magda: Thank for all of your comments, but this one really tickles me. The daughter of a friend found some antique little dresses in a vintage shop years ago, and photos of the granddaughter (now 22) are still beautiful family treasures! Your daughters are the perfect age for this! xo

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

She really makes me believe that she is a "visitor from the past"! She has an unequaled charm!

23 Jan 2009 10:06am

@Japanalia: Thank you, Gabriela ... and I know how much you were taken by her.

Stephanie from Toronto, Canada

So cute! I agree with the above, she's right out of the era!
