I have no idea who this little girl is. I was lining up a shot for something else and happened to glance down to find this wee child by my side looking up at me. I whipped my camera around to shoot the marvelous expression you see here. She giggled in surprise and ran away. When I saw the image on my computer, the lighting and angle brought to my mind that this is how an Old Master could well have painted her. So I have tried to present her beautiful countenance as if emerging from the artist’s canvas. . Nikon S640, 1/600s @ f.2, ISO:100, processed in CS2 with my own textures.
