nothing is more joyful than when an adult retains and remains in touch with their inner child. what makes this photo so perfect is her sheer happiness. so refreshing to see that not everyone in manhattan is jaded.
Happy New to you and Garance. May 2011 grant both of you peace, health, happiness, love. Thank you both for your fantastic and intelligent websites.
I'm officially old and uncool, because my 1st thought in seeing this photograph was, "Oh my goodness, I hope she lands without slipping and without shattering her knees!" Maybe I've just gotten so accustomed to STILL photography that when the subject is actually moving, I become discombobulated & anxious. Yeesh.
I love her rosy cheeks! And I guess it's not that cold over there since she has her coat open – or then all that jumping in the snow has warmed her up! Everyone should try that (and long merino wool/silk underwear) – embracing the wonderful winter instead of complaining about it and missing all the fun! She really has the right attitude and boots to match it.
Wow, this photo is amazing! It expresses pure joy. And of course her hair is simply great and brings some colour in the photo. Her style isn't that extraordinary but she is happy and this is what counts. I love her parka by the way.
Big snowstorms often make people sooo cranky. It's nice to see someone actually enjoying the snow instead of complaining about its inconvenience. This shot captures sheer joy–something we all need in greater abundance.
This photo evokes such joy. You see the child leaping out of this woman, the little girl who still loves to play in the snow. However, I am so sick of those army green winter coats. The color is so bland and projects sadness to me. It's a shame this sparkling woman couldn't have worn brighter colors. I think fashion can still be upbeat in the winter :).
