My Daughter

La Bella Dahlia
Camera: Nikon D300
Mode: Auto
Lens: Nikkor 18-200mm
Focal length: 48mm
ISO: 3200
Aperture: f/6.3
I thought I'd have a little fun, and throw caution to the wind and enter this contest (Mamarazzi). Not for any photography skill (for which I have none, yet) but I qualify only because I am a Mother and this is my darling daughter Dahlia.
I am so proud of who my little girl is becoming. Each day her wings spread a little more and she is carried a little higher by allowing the wind to catch under them. This picture has the innocence of a little 6 year old just discovering everything for the first time and yet, in her eyes, I can see the woman she may become. And the dress (if I squint) could be my little girl, all grown up, in her wedding dress.
Makes me weep with joy!
