Talking Pictures
“Enjoy Yourself!”

On vacation in Abaco, Bahamas, we were painting buoys we found to hang on the trees of my sister's vacation home. After just a few minutes I noticed my niece's hands and it became obvious the shot I needed to take. I had her hold her hands out so I could shoot a few frames at various apertures. The result, I felt, captured exactly what I intended. The photograph encapsulates youth and living without the weight of a thousand day-to-day "roadblocks" that for the most part we create ourselves.
