Just twirling.... by JennyMac

Currently unavailable for purchase

Scanned neg. This is an older one. When my daughter was small she had a pretty long dress that she liked to play dress up in. It was not unusual to catch her in a quiet moment just twirling round and round getting the dress to fly out as far as she could. I needed some images of movement for something I was doing at the time and so she became my subject for the day. This is just one of that series. Unfortunately, some of the other shots from this series are pretty scratched up… it would take some time in ps to restore them I’m afraid… : (

    gorgeous shot, such freedom :)

  • Thanks Jakki… children have a way of expressing a freedom which we as adults tend to keep hidden… I like to think of images such as this as a reminder to let our inner child loose once in a while…!! : )

    Love the movement through this image! Gorgeous work

  • Thanks Tots… glad you like it! I actually did a pastel painting from this a few years ago… I wanted to see if I could capture the movement. It was one of those works that just ‘flowed’ onto the page in one day. I sold it not long after and had not even taken a photo of it… so I’ve tried to recreate it since… but it just doesn’t have that same feeling… oh well… maybe it’s just not meant to be… : )
