CDP Blog Day - Photo of the Year 2009


I thought this would be a difficult choice for me. After all, for a photographer having to choose your favorite photograph, is like choosing which of your children you love best! I started with the most recent posts and worked my way back. I gave an extra look at the ones with the most comments from you and then .........here she was. I knew immediately that this was IT! I hope you'll enjoy seeing her again as much as I did.

en effet cela a du etre dur de faire un choix dans toute tes photos, mais superbe choix de ce petit ange, elle est magnifique

Paula said...

Yep, that's The One, Missy.

Louis la Vache said...

We wonder what is going through her very young mind. A very touching portrait.

You have a great blog here. I like checking out travel blogs much like yours at times. I have a blog myself which I hope will be a great resource for those looking to go on vacation. I want everyone to get that "vacation feeling" every time they come to my site. You know what I'm talking about.

I'd like to exchange links with you to help spread some traffic around between each other. Please let me know if this is possible. Until then, keep up the good work.

Louis,
I wonder myself.

Paula,
Merci!

Olivier,
How nice of you to say that!

Kate said...

She's a beauty and B&W is perfect! Interesting that so many of us selected photos of children, perhaps because of the freshness and innocence?

Eeyore said...

Great blend of hard rock/soft cloth; fancy dress/zip boots; here now cookie/somewhere else eyes; and yes, black/white. Super!

brattcat said...

I've loved so many of your shots. But you did a brilliant job of choosing. I remember how striking this image was the first time it was posted and it is wonderful to see it making a return appearance. Bravo, V.

Halcyon said...

This is a sweet photo. Great choice!

Jilly said...

Oh yes! She's perfection. That dress, those boots, the way she is standing and that expression - her eyes and of course the biscuit. All add up, with the wall, to make the most beautiful photograph.

Hilda said...

Cool boots! And absolutely adorable!

altadenahiker said...

This is wonderful, of course, but my favorite is the one you dedicated to me!

Virginia said...

Merci mes amies. I leave tomorrow( waaaaaa) so I will resume posting something, I know not what, on Sunday.

Fabulous shot in every way. Somehow I missed hearing about this and so I didnt get to participate .. damn.

cieldequimper said...

She looks so sad and contemplative yet it is a unique work of art.

bfarr said...

She sure likes that cookie.

Thérèse said...

I still remember this shot. Wonderful! Excellent choice.

Petrea said...

She's it all right. Perfection in her and in your photograph of her.

What a great photo. The boots are just the frosting on the cookie, aren't they?

Rambling Round said...

Her expression while eating the cookie is just priceless, and I love her boots!

TheChieftess said...

Fabulous photo V!!! I must have joined your blog after you posted this as it's my first time seeing it...she's absolutely precious!!! I totally agree with Eeyore's description of the contrasts in this one...
