Title • far from the crowd

This one was taken a couple of minutes before Saturday's entry. What I like about this one is not our eldest and youngest with their heads together, though it's good to see them having fun, but rather our four year old contemplating the sea beyond the end of the pier. Up until the last few months she hasn't been a particularly relaxed child (despite photographs to the contrary here), so it's good to see her beginning to be a little more relaxed with the world.

And thanks for all the comments on yesterday's shot, which I guess I should explain, at least a little. As I mentioned, my wife thought it was vile, and I can see what she means – it says little about our daughter. But I like it because it steps outside of the way that we normally view children – as cosy, small and relatively powerless creatures – and invites a more imaginative view (if that makes sense). Anyway, if nothing else, it was different.
