Lexington Avenue in downtown Asheville is one of my favorite places to take photographs of people. Some of my favorites in my gallery were shot there. So New Year's Eve, I wandered downtown just to see what was going on and came across this little girl playing in the window of the vintage clothing store, "Honeypot." Seeing her with all the fancy dresses and accessories around her was like looking into her imagination and fantasy world.
I also encountered a guy with turquoise hair, so I was a happy photographer :)

This is such a cute shot of this little girl in the window of a shop. A passerby can mistake her as a model in the shop window :). I think she is happy with all those things around her. Thanks for sharing.

j'aime beaucoup cette petite fille au milieu de tous ces accessoires de mode. Elle semble jouer dans un monde merveilleux comme un vieux grenier qui recèlerait des trésors, loin des réalités...

The little girls pose and body language is just that of a child lost in their imagination, but how strange to see that sight in a shop window like this. An unusual scene to say the least, and timing once again allowed your capture. A photo to make anyone smile.

For a little girl to get lost in a shop for vintage clothes should feel like being in Schlaraffenland. There must be a lof of soft, pink clothes to try on. You captured her at a fine moment and there's a lot to watch in this picture even for old men.

bzzzz.... a little bee came in for the golden honey in the honeypot. she already knows where she will be plundering in 10 years :)
and yes, i guess, he was a baldie wearing a turquoise wig, whose portrait, i suppose, we will be encountering in these coming days :)
such are your photos, and of course words attached, useful for presenting the aura of asheville on TE. the urban population is said to be 238.318 and we already have seen or heard about some 318 of them. we slowly get to know the place, and it is so much out of the regular america we have been shown here, in this part of the world.

Girl likes colorful things at all eyes I guess Great catch. I like also how her face stays hidden under the hat and her hair.
enjoy your day
