    She almost looks like she is hungry and there are fish in the water.

  • yes, she looks like she’s intent on finding something in that water

    A girl who intends on making that fountain “real” for her. Bloody good on her.

    I love the contrasts in this Judith, the shoes neatly placed on the top step whilst she wades round in the dirty water with her wet hair doing what??? is she desperately searching for something dropped in the water, is she just cooling off, having a personal moment… who knows but the image makes me want to know and that means you got my attention & held it! WELL DONE, GREAT CANDID :)

  • ah, you noticed the shoes, my favorite part of this image aside from her expression :-)

    That’s just great Judith. Love the lines and tones, the comp. the light, and it is so the look of concentration that kids get.
