What can we learn from the little ones?
What do we see as they play?
What can we glean from their socializing?
What from their innocent ways?
Could we apply examples from these?
Would we want to adjust?
Is it within our vocabularies?
Can we spell “unconditional trust”?

Canon 7D, f/8.0, 1/500 s, 70mm, ISO-100

Photomanipulation with 2 photos (clouds plus child), blended in PS Elements, with final shading and coloring in PS Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.
