For most of the time our three year old acts as though she were possessed, and "relaxed" is the very last word you would use to describe her. Rarely though, as with this shot, she appears almost magically elfin and mysteriously calm.

Oh, and this is one that must be viewed with the dark theme.

Update (31st December, 2004): The final Photo Friday challenge for this year is Best of 2004 and it didn't take me long to decide that I should put this shot up. Technically I'm not sure that it's my best shot, but it's certainly one of my most striking and one of the ones I'm most proud of out of all the ones I've posted in the last 12 months. And oddly enough, this time last year, I posted a shot of the same daughter for the Photo Friday Best of 2003 challenge.

Update #2 (11th January, 2005): I'm really pleased to be able to say that this shot was awarded a noteworthy. Many thanks to everyone who voted :-)
