Here is a re-worked image of my little girl and my husband which was on RB a while ago.. I keep coming back to it so finally decided to play with it and here it is… I originally had this image in colour but got some great advice from a fellow bubbler to try it in b&w so I did……

This image was taken when my little girl fell over on the rocks and hurt her knees and her daddy gave her a piggy back to the car before the storm came.

    I can see why you kept going back to it because of the heart, the mood, the pain in the child and the healing from the love of Daddy to piggy-back her to the car, and then there’s the storm which caused an urgency in the whole episode…I like this in black and white also, great suggestion and final choice. Well done, wonderful capture and mood.
