The girl was dancing and moving happy while wearing her mother shoes, she was so lovely I took some quick snaps from her, trying not to be discovered by her
In a hurry I didn't realize I cut a bit of the shoes, as it happens here
Siberian weather and way to dress
I walked for no more of half hour at the streets of Listvyanka, what call my attention was that some people was wearing winter cloths while others have light summer ones, as you can see in these series

hello maria ~
a beautiful portrait, even with the frown ~ the shoes and the loose dress give women all over the world an instant memory of dressing up in their own mother's or big sister's clothes :)
and not only is the little girl charming, you have her so nicely framed in this wonderful collection of old wooden fences, each with their own patina and remnants of paint colors.
nicely seen & framed!

Never mind the toes. It's the girl's face, her hair and dress and her mother's shoes that really count. She is gorgeous and has such an entirely spontaneous childish expression. I also like the faded paint of the wooden background that matches her hair perfectly.

A nice shot. It showing very real expression of the cute little girl. Good framing. And yes you still managed to capture her shoes.
Thanks & regards,

You're capturing well this girl wearing lovely summer dress, so it's impressive to see her childish expression and long hair. It's a bit funny about mother's shoes. It's impressive in simple/wooden fences and green plants of backdrop, too.

Marvelous taken the pic. of this young girl, maybe at the age of 5, to my view.
A cute glance over your direction - but not strait at the camera, yet an inncent look.

Hi Maria. I wonder what dreams fill her mind as she plays a role here. Is she imagining being somewhere else more glamorous, more fashionable. makes one wonder what life has in store for her in a small place. I find this image poignant as she doesn't seem to be a particularly happy child. Regards. Klaudio.

Such a natural pose of a beautiful portrait that make me smile with the over sized shoes and the background suggests a countryside. A delightful cute girl
and your spontaneous shot is excellent with so much feeling to it. Such a pleasant face, innocence is absolute bliss. Fine work, Congrats.

Excellent snapshot in superb light. I like low angle viewpoint and the nice details, including also the big shoes on small feet. Well done. Greetings, Miro

Simpatico retrato de esta chica, que ya quiere ser mayor y llevar zapatos de tacon, el fonde de la imagen nos hace pensar que se trata de un medio rural.
La niña tiene un rostro de muñeca y un pelo precioso.
Buena gestion de la luminosidad y nitidez.
Disfruta de un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Un saludo carinoso para vos

Cinderella plays an elegant pose, showing her nice getup for the jetset soirée that she has interest to quit before midnight for fear of loosing both shoes!!

such a sweet, inetesting and familiar scene! A wonderful timely capture that has preserved all the spontaneity and charm of the scene. I like very much the glow of the dress and the beauty of the little girl against the textures and colours that surround her, the contrast is amazing. Her dreamy expression is captivating and her eyes say that she is picturing a different, a private world, and while we are observing her and her surroundings, she is seeing the same things in a very different way. A wonderful portrait indeed, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Fantastic portrait of beautiful girl.

Que linda, en los calzados de mamá!

What a cool portrait, and I could not but smile to see h wearing those oversized shoes, she is obviously in her own little world where she is the centre of the universe. I love that this sene is so soft, the color and light and the girls clothing, but this contrasts with the harshness of the stel fence behind her, putting her entirely in ontext with her surroundings, while still being sensitive to her world as she imagines it. Really nicely done.
All the best

Privet Miss Maria,
Isn't it an interesting study of human personality, seeing people living in the same conditions, but each with their individual preferences of attire, regardless of the weather conditions. Even here in the desert where it's generally sun filled and warm, there are many who will wear a heavy coat and scarf because they become cold!??
Anyway, on to this delightful capture with this little girl trying to fill her mothers shoes. :) Juuuust a bit to large for her feet, yeah? lol This is great though, and somethng I'm sure we've all done at that age and can relate to. But most importantly, it's the endearing quaility and candid nature of this picture which carries the most impact. You may have "cut" her feet from the frame, but it doesn't matter when the result is this good to have captured the age of innocence. Very well done! Have a great day mi amiga.
Cheers from the North,

wieder ein beeindruckendes Foto von deiner Serie Leute in Sibirien, zu große Schuhe, kein Problem für Kinder (Kinder brauchen keinen Luxus); Kinder brauchen Spaß und genug Zeit zum Spielen. Dein Foto dokumentiert das sehr gut, gratuliere!
Wünsch dir eine schöne Zeit
