On my way home from the horse pastures the other day...

...this lady and child popped in out of nowhere. (Thank God for my zoom because I never would have caught them otherwise.)

This child knows me or maybe I know her. That's how wistfully I look back every time I leave!


  1. This little girl is absolutely precious! I wish we could see what her doll is wearing.

  2. So cute! Love that she's carrying her "baby".

    This might sound like a Canon commercial but I find the zoom so powerful on the S3IS that I often use mine just to look at things I can't see well. Handier than binoculars and I can snap a pic if I want to.

  3. Mrs.M/Shari: I thought the same thing. In fact, I wished I could have been in front of them to see them from that perspective, too, but then, I probably couldn't have taken a pic! The little girl reminds me of an "old soul" Earth Mother! Or a traveling gypsy!

    Jozee: Exactly. I can't tell you how many times I could gladly make a commercial for them. Any time! Believe it or not, sometimes those shots are better than macros! So glad somebody knows what I mean :)

  4. She's adorable! Great quick capture Ginnie. I love her layers of skirts.

  5. How cute and nice and how lovely to see this little hand in mom's makeing the little girl feeling so safe and happy. Thanks for sharing this moment of comfort with us Ginnie!

  6. Mad: Yes--it was all those layers that made me think she was from the '70's :)

    Renny: Awww. Comfort is a good word for that pic!

    Jozee: So fun :)

  7. They look quite European, don't they? I don't imagine a pair looking like this on a walk in Atlanta. I wonder what's in the bag . . . lunch?

    The girl looks timeless.

  8. That's neat. I especially like the second photo.

  9. Ruth: Yes, very European! We might see somethig like this in Little Five Points in midtown Atlanta, which is quite eclectic. Lunch? Maybe, since it was around 12:30-ish. I'm guessing Mommy had just picked her up from daycare/Noah's Ark Kindergarten?

    Tim: Thanks.

    ET: And thanks to you, too.
