Someday my Prince will Come

Cholita is always in formal attire, so it's rarely a photo-worthy moment. This morning though, I was impressed with the addition of the tissue paper peplum (thanks for the correct term, Teresa) held together with a lavender hair bow. She said she was on her way to the ball. While I focused the camera, her expression became so far-off and dreamy that I just had to ask:

"Cholita, are you thinking of the prince?"
"No," she said. "I'm thinking of the mice that made my dress."

Oh, well of course.
Someday my mice will come.

Not your typical dream on a New Year's Day,
but who am I to judge.

She is such a beauty. And a cutie. And has a nifty imagination, too. She has it all, that one. :D

Happy New Year!

Absolutely precious! Those mice should open up a children's boutique!

Happy New Year!

Gratitude is always becoming to the lovliest, and most creative, of princesses!

That is so creative! I love it!

I love this photo! It's funny how our captions seldom match up to what was really going on at the time of the photo! My daughter never wants to be the princess -- always the prince!

Great depth of field on the photograph. Of course, I love the subject, but your photography is getting so GREAT! Especially considering that you are manually focusing. Well done. :0
