Beautiful Dreamers

Dreaming a story
story time dreamer

From time to time I will digress from landscapes and nature and try to capture people. Children are so beautiful and natural and we have plenty of subjects to choose from in our extended family. They shine with the delight of being alive except perhaps when they’re tired or when they first wake up (even Sleeping Beauty might have been grumpy after a 100 year sleep).

You never know when you might find a sprite amongst the seaside daisies or a roving band of bravehearts in a playing field; one sporting a sylvester tee shirt.  I need a little practice with sports shots.

I love monochrome now ( thank you Leanne Cole). The first photo called Dreamer I have submitted to Leanne Cole‘s Monochrome Madness!

    There is nothing sweeter then capturing a child. Although I do mostly fine art photography, As a hobby I photograph kids. They are so innocent and precious.
