BIrmingham Rouge - Girl With Red Hat

Do you think I could pass this up?  Luckily her mom agreed.
How about that curl???

Love it!

Kate said...

Again, another poetic photo, VJ!

There was a little girl

There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I cannot imagine this little one being THAT bad, but she does look a bit of a scamp, doesn't she?!

Lovely Virginia! Great portrait!

Daryl said...

Seriously .. open a studio or do house calls .. kids photography .. you are the best kid snapper I know!

SRQ said...

So sweet. I bet Mom was tickled --and loves this portrait.

Kate and I thought the very same thing! I had no idea that was a Longfellow poem.
Daryl is right...start marketing "yo bad self"...toute de suite!

A beautiful portrait of a beautiful face Virginia.
Have a beautiful day.

I'm just like the others -- gush, gush, gush. I hope her mom finds this portrait and saves it.

RedPat said...

I am with Kate - that poem is the first thing that I thought of. Lovely portrait.

Virginia said...

Thank you all. I did think of that wonderful poem but decided that she most definitely was never "horrid:! HA

Are the Red Hat Ladies recruiting younger these days? It makes me think of the old nursery rhyme:

There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead.
And when she was good
She was very, very good,
And when she was bad she was horrid

Which makes me think of Mae West's variation:
But when I'm bad, I'm better.
