Photographer's Note

I happened upon this moment at the National Botanic Gardens in Washington DC when I was visiting earlier this month. This poor little guy had apparently just discovered how fragile Christmas ornaments can be!
In the midst of what seemed to me like hundreds of pre-schoolers, it was his bad luck to have knocked something off the tree. His mama was picking up the fragments and scolding him quietly in a language I didn't recognize, and the little dude's frozen-in-his-tracks body language was just precious (see workshop for another one of him.)
This is one of those photographs that is not for the art of it, but rather for capturing a moment ~ we've all been there ;)

Merry Christmas * Ględelig Jul * Feliz Navidad * Joyeux Noėl * Buon Natale * mutlu Noeller * God Jul * Wesołych Świąt * Καλά Χριστούγεννα * Sretan Božić * Fröhliche Weihnachten! * g'day Christmas! to TE friends all over the world ~ I have loved getting to know you and your photography this year, and very much appreciate the wisdom, creativity and advice you've shared with me over the past 9 months!
