I've dropped the ball again on consistency in posting, the girls have been on spring break so not much is getting done around here. Excuses out of the way, how could I not pick this image as a favorite? Even before I had the pleasure of meeting Colleen Plumb in person a couple of years ago I was a fan of her body of work "Animals are Outside Today" which you can see here. Colleen also has two daughters around the same ages as Edie and June and a newer in-progress series focuses on more domestic surroundings, akin to the picture "Elsa in the Living Room" below. It's not just because this shot shows a favorite and familiar subject matter, but because it's a beautiful image in composition, light quality and expression. Now off to the zoo with the kids where I'll see the sites through different eyes thanks to Colleen.
