  • Many thanks for your lovely comment Kira… this little one sure was on a mission, I watched her dig this hole for ages and could just sense the determination.

    I just love this photo!

  • I love it too Helen..thanks!
    This little one was singing and talking to herself as she dug…I wondered what wonderful game she was playing. watching her brought back so many childhood memories for me, as an only child I would often play like this on my own and have such wonderful adventures.

    What an absolutely delightful title for this fabulous image!!! Terrific capture with your creative originality! Happy New Year Marion!!!

  • LOL, thank you my dear Lianne…the title came to mind the instant I saw this little miss digging with such concentration and determination. I remembered quite clearly digging a huge hole like this at the beach one day & my dad asking me if I was digging my way to China, & me thinking I could actually DO it when I was about the same age…back then nothing seemed impossible…

  • A big Happy New Year to you as well Lianne, may it be full of joy, laughter and abundance for you my friend. :)

    Focus and determination … and job to be done!!! Beautifully done … wonderful colour and depth of field keeps attention on the ‘business in hand’ … or more precisely ‘business in spade’.

  • Hi Jude, lovely to see you and many thanks! Yes, great determination and concentration here..she sure was on a mission and definitely immersed in some wonderful, imaginative adventure.

    Great shot… the scoop of sand looks slushy so she must have hit water! Not that much further to China now ;)

  • She wasn’t giving up Matt, water or not! lol
    Thank you. :)
