Yesterday, the weather was so beautiful. My children and I spent the day outside playing. I love those photo ops where I can capture them appreciating the simple things in life. I thought this was a great image for selective coloring. Please also check out my selective coloring website at:

    Thank you soooo much, Deborah. This photo actually reminded me a little of some of your work because you always manage to evoke such a spectacular mood or expression in all your b & w photographs of children. I’m so glad you like it!
