A Serendipitous Encounter (and subsequent failure of courage.. )
This cheeky soul arrived just as I had lined up a shot of the windows to the porch of the lighthouse. Delighted with herself, she was. My difficulty came in the form of her grandmother, in that I couldn’t convince the good woman that I was equally delighted to have this sprite enliven my window.
I hastily snapped a couple of pics before the fun was over and the child submitted to return to her grandma. It’s another one of those times when I wish I were more courageous, or .. something. I would have enjoyed actually planning some pictures with this little model, but.. I wasn’t sufficiently brave to impose on the grandma. The child, clearly, was a joyfully willing subject!
