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.
Thank you very much:)
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:)

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate your comment:)

Thanks a lot for your nice comment, Carol:)
Wonderful capture and love her expression!
Thanks you very much for the feature! It really means a lot to me:):):)
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:)

Thanks a lot, Timmy! Yes, she was sad for a little while, fortunately not because of me:):)
