I was taking a photo of this turtle sculpture on The Strand in Townsville when a little girl wandered up to give it a pat. Her mother called out, ‘Out of the way – the lady’s trying to take a photo.’ I said, ’It’s ok, it’s much better with her in it!’ And it was.

Goes with this photo: ‘Bye bye turtle’.

Nikon D60 with 50mm f/1.8 lens. May 2009.

    Absolutely agree, the child has given a life and emotion to what would have been, in essence, a statue. Great timing and beautifully shot.

  • Thanks Globaleye.

    I thought it was a real turtle and she was feeding it. Great capture, lucky day.
