    Could you tell us what’s the story on this poor little girl. She looks so unhappy – great shot though – but so sad.

  • Well, she was just sitting on a chair in that kitchen, looking at me with those eyes. And when I pointed my camera on her she kept sitting like this, letting me do my camera job. The reason she was sad for a while I don´t know. Few minutes later she was happy and playing in the backyard:)

    expressive. well captured. nice colour of the dress.

  • Thanks a lot for your comment, Ursa! Yes, the dress was very colored, and in Ukraine you very often see strong colors in contrast to grey surroundings.

    Just wonderful….and good that you put the story there…because the idea that she was forced into it…makes a difference to me…Mostly pictures need no explanation, but here, almost being a documentary shot…it is very good, to see in perspective…

  • Thanks a lot for your comment, and that you emphasis the need of an explaining text. I agree that it may look like I forced her to pose for me. And now I´m even more happy that I didn´t:):):)

    Brilliant capture.. wonderful colours.. but nothing like her pose n face expression! hahah so cute,,GREAT work!

  • Thank you very much, Lorena! I´m so glad you like it:) Yes, that girl and her expression was just incredible charming. To me as a photographer she was just a gift that day. And fortunately it wasn´t because of me she had that sad expression:)

    I think she’s upset that she had to wear that dress!!!
    I would be mad too. Great photograph. : )

  • That was possibly the reason, Maryann… Anyhow, thanks a lot for your comment:)
