Little Miss Sunshine :)

Little Miss Sunshine :)

We never got any rains but we did get a lot of breeze and a smattering of clouds. An almost perfect weekend before life gets busier and lesser fun.

A jaunt to Siesta Key in Sarasota a week earlier yielded this shot. Its one of the finest places to visit on this side of Florida. The crystal-white sand is so fine that it feels like satin below feet(they tell moi, the sand here is 99% pure quartz). And the Gulf of Mexico as blue as Blue Curacao.

She was the cynosure of every adoring eye on the beach. People would stop by just to smile at all the fun she was having. I could not contain my enthusiasm while capturing her and ended up with more than a dozen odd shots (as always :D). This one's my favorite. Absolutely adored the way she wants to have fun in water but not brave enough yet to leave her mom's side :) Have a great start to a great week, all :)

Hi Moi,
Great shot,nice layers of colour. Realy good family picture, i never do enough of those.
Cracking word to, i had to look it up in the dictionary. I see from your other blog that this is a bit of a hobby.I am a gourmand of photography!!!
Sent the rain by post this morning, not sure when you will get it, but it is on it's way.

Moi said...

Hey Mark, Thank u! I am shy with people but am beginning to let go of it ...Still am not confident enough to do close-ups.....I too love the colours here..there are a few places that u connect with instantly....This was one of those places.And words are my first love...even before camera.
And u are my rain-angel :))))

Mr. J said...

You have truly captured the fact of life that kids are cute from far but far from cute.

diyadear said...

moi,
wat a cute pie... i love kids...esp babies.. :)

JAM said...

Really nice shot. A kid's only job is to have fun. Everyone stops to try to recapture, if just a tiny bit, of that carefree joy.

Florida's gulf coast beaches are some of the best in the world. The gulf is usually gentle too.

Lori said...

This is such a sweet picture of mother and child. And what a gorgeous shot of the ocean and the beach. I like the way you photographed it on an angle like that. It makes for a very interesting photo. I can just hear the sound of the waves!

Moi said...

diya : me too :)

JAM : they sure are the best in the world...Loved Siesta Key beach and long back had been to North Beach ..which was great too :)

Lori : thank u . the ocean and the beach are so gorgeous that no shot can do justice to their beauty.....it's one of my fav. parts of Florida :)

Geraldo said...

She's really cute, and your description of the place is great, it could be used on a travel guide!

(I confess I had to look in the dictionary for "cynosure", thanks for enriching my vocabulary... :-) )

Very nice shot

Kalyan said...

A wonderfully captured & composed shot. The angle makes the shot even more interesting although the subject by itself is a lovely one.

Great descriptions...blue Curacao water, and crystal white sand..my idea of Heaven!
