A cheeky sparkle



 

I was picking up DD2 and one of her friends from a dance exam a few weeks ago and was standing by the car, waiting for them to come out.

DS then started to play with his baby sister. I whipped my mobile phone out and took snapshots of them, hopping to capture the love and delight on DB's face. This I didn't get but... I had the good surprise to find that little eye in the mirror, with such a mischievous and cheeky sparkle in it!

I played a bit with the focus and colour to make it stand out and give you my entry for this week's Gallery : Expressions!

  6. That's fantastic, really effective :) It's great when these things take you by surprise and you end up with something you weren't expecting.

    1. I think so too. It's a bit like these detective stories where a compromising evidence has been captured by accident !

  13. Sometimes you never know what you have until after you've taken it. And sometimes those are the BEST surprises :)

  16. I know what you mean. I often watch them for a while, enjoying immensly whatever they're doing. Then think "I should take a picture" at which point it's of course too late!
