I figured I would start where the last one begins :p

You know this is my second year of snow. I grew up on the Florida coast and always dreamed of sleding. When I got married and moved to Kansas City I was absorbed in the thought of winter. It came..I was so cold. :p

You can't imagine what a shock my system had to overcome. I always wish that my two little nieces could expirence the snow and the games you can play in it. Children should have everything that can be offered to them with in reasonable means. Your daughter has a very beautiful life. This is so fun to look at. Her face says it all.

SO worth framing. This is one of those that goes up on the wall and makes you smile everytime you pass it. ^^ we have a couple of cthose back home, but these moments, capturing them forever-so rare.

so yay you! woot!^_^

cweeks Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2005
besides the emotions in this photo ... it was very difficult to make.

the sun was a bitch. the motion. and ... it's with a manual focus leica.

thanks for fav'ing it!
h3wi3ntj4h Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2005
well it was worth the trouble of difficult lighting and motion!!! ;-)

you're a fucking genious for exposing this properly and still getting the moment. how the hell did you do it?
cweeks Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2005
very difficult. basically i use a poorman's ambient reflection meter. i meter the skin tone on my hand given the angle of light. and hope.

the meter coverage of the leica on a 35mm is exactly the size of my palm.

worked pretty well this time!

glad you liked it!

That's a very beautiful daughter you have there.

Great composition and perspective.

Actually a brilliant capture. The alignment with the light shows the snow being kicked up and that adds the livelyness of the photo. Great shot, great work. :D (Big Grin)
