against the odds - kat eye studio's photo-heart connection July 2012

sad moments and bad weather can end up in lovely pictures too.  
it was grey and wet outside.  
lulu had been crying and 
was holding this big white polar bear close to her, 
and she looked so sweet in that tender moment with mr bear.  
the photo's softness highlights this special moment, 
and the little tear 
delicately resting under her right eye
 tells the story of that moment

i'm linking with kat eye studio's photo-heart connection (July 2012)
because i believe, like Kat,
that a photograph is so much more
than composition, colours, light, etc
it's also so much about what it says 
to our human heart
i believe this is what makes people stop in front of a photo
and study it, analyse it, loose themselves in it
for me, the photograph i worked on this July past
is this photo
it speaks to me on a very deep level
