The very nature of photography is slicing time. Photographs are based on exposure to light, be it film or sensor and usually lasting only a fraction of a second. But in that unique moment, magic is made, never to be repeated, for seasons change, expressions are different, and nothing is static. It’s just a click, but one of endless boundaries and imagination, pausing time, and never to be captured again.

This image has been sitting in my archives for 16 years never realizing its potential. I tried several version of cropping and levels of colors from its true colors to traces of color. I felt the black and white provided the best choice for focusing on the young girl's faces and hands. Color was too distracting. I like to closeness and nurturing nature of the image.
