What a cute picture (although I'm sure she was probably going for a serious, mysterious look). Wherever you were, it looks like it was a fun day or night out. - G

Copyboy said...

So cute. Can she tell my future?

Talli Roland said...

Love the expression on her face and the way she's staring straight down the camera...

Stickup Artist said...

Kids are so great in front of the camera. They do not exhibit the self-conscious mannerisms of adults. Great portrait. Love the black and white!

Budd said...

There is something haunting about this picture, maybe the hands.

Warren Zoell said...

50,000

Brian said...

She cast a spell I think!

Dawn said...

She is beautiful. :)
She seems to get along quite well with your camera!

The Vegetable Assassin said...

I think she might be holding an invisible crystal ball.... :) CUTE!

Francisca said...

She's putting a spell on all of us! :-)

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

lovely- she's a keeper!

altadenahiker said...

Cross her palm with silver. With a lot of silver, because those are some big palms.

Lynne H. said...

What a beautiful young girl.. Tay is her name? My son has about 10 nicknames, and Tay is one of them..

Pat Tillett said...

Georgina - Thanks! She was indeed going for the look. I think it lasted for about an hour. It was at her great grandmas birthday.

jesse - She looked at your palm and saw the sign of the wolf...

Talli - She's an actress...

Stickup Artist - you are so right. At this point, I'd prefer not have my photo taken...

Budd - Thanks! I thought it would come out best in B&W

Warren - I'll be long gone before then....LOL

Brian - I think so!

Dawn - Thanks1 Oh yeah, she will pose for days...

TVA - Thanks! She just may be...

Francisca - She's sure got me in her pocket!

Ren - Thanks so much!

Karin - She saids she's done with silver, she wants gold...

Lynne - Thanks! She's got a lot of nics also. her full name is Taylor

She scares me a bit. I think I'm still traumatized by Children of the Corn. I'd say she has an acting future, if she wants one.
Happy Turkey time!

Nat said...

She's beautiful :)

Sarah said...

haunting, in a lovely way.

Pat Tillett said...

Robyn - Gypsy of the corn! She's already an actress! (at home anyway).

Nat - Thanks so much!

Sarah - That's my girl... Thanks!

Marlene said...

Pat Tillett said...

Marlene - Thanks! She's a real ham!

faye - Always ready to pose! Thanks!

Jimmy - thanks! You sure do!

Rek said...

She's got the look...B/W enhances it. ...you possess an invisible crystal ball?? The Mystery deepens...

Pat Tillett said...

Rek - She's got the look alright! The look of a nut! That is no mystery...LOL

Anthony J Langford said...

What a cute little nugget - yours Pat I assume? How long ago was this?

SquirrelQueen said...

She is a beauty and she already knows how to play to the camera, she will be a star.

Happy Thanksgiving Pat, I hope you and your family have a wonderful day.

Pat Tillett said...

Anthony - Thanks! Yes, she is my granddaughter. it was taken last year at her great grandmothers birthday party.

Squirrel Queen - A ham through and through! Thanks Judy, I hope you and your family do likewise!

Leovi said...

tapirgal said...

Great Thanksgiving photo - or any time. She's gorgeous and kids are such cool subjects.

Saranna said...

What great intensity! I'd maybe(just maybe, I like the snapshot feel too) crop it from the sides to make it more portrait-y.

Stephen Tremp said...

I actually knew a guy who was kidnapped by gypsies when he was a lad. This would be in the 1930s. He recently passed away but had a great story to tell. Parents had to pay gypsies to get him back.

Jenny said...

What a neat picture!

Ree said...

There's a story in those eyes!

Kato said...

Gypsy Girl...that's what my father has called me for years and years ;)

diane rene said...

she has a very exotic look about her - gonna be one of those drop dead gorgeous women

Pat Tillett said...

tapirgal - Thanks! They do make good subjects...

Saranna - Thanks that is good advice if it was taken as a portrait. However, I'm not a big fan of them. I like the old snapshot candid feel of a pic like this one. thanks though!

Stephen - The place I grew up in always had a gypsy presence. One time I lived across the street from some. They were very intersting.

Jenny - Thanks Jenny!

Ree - Oh yeah, and she'll tell you all about it also...

Kato - That's funny because I called her that for a short while afterwards.

diane - hispanic, asian, and white...

Steadfast Ahoy! said...

Cool stickers are way better than tattoos in my book. Yup, she's seriously into it. Model material for sure.

Carmi said...

What I'd give to know what she's thinking now. Brilliant shot of a child who clearly knows how to interact with the lens. That's a rare, wonderful gift!

Pat Tillett said...

Rosemary - I know, I think they are balloon stickers! LOL...

Carmi - She will pose or act for the camera anywhere and anytime!
thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Lucy said...

Dear Pat

I'm pleased so many people are enjoying your blog now but all the comments are jamming my inbox!

I've always signed up to read what other visitors say but I can no longer cope!

So . . . from now on, although I will continue to visit and to comment, I won't be ticking the little box for later comments to be forwarded. Nor will I necessarily read what the people before me have said. It's a bit anti-social but . . . well, otherwise, I will have to make reading what's here my life's work!

John McElveen said...

Absolutely CAPTIVATING--the Hands are almost scary!!! What Power in that Child!

Great Capture Buddy!!!!!

Icy BC said...

She is beautiful!

Pat Tillett said...

Lucy - I understand! As long as you continue to stop by and comment I'll be happy! You've been with me since the very beginning and I'll always appreciate it.
Thanks Lucy...

John - She's a little charmer! Thanks!

Icy BC - Thanks so much. I really don't like taking pics of people unless they are candid. But this one is an exception. I've taken so many...

Jerry said...

I assume she is your daughter...and is indeed lovely. You have to be lucky and proud.

Living In Williamsburg Virginia said...

That is the cutest gypsy we've ever seen. She's really trying to sell it.

Darryl and Ruth : )

Pat Tillett said...

Jerry - Nope, not my daughter, even better, she's my granddaughter! Thanks Jerry!

D & R - She sure is! I should have posted the other few I took at the same time...thanks!

tapirgal said...

Pat, Sabino Canyon is indeed near Tucson, but I can't remember if it's south - maybe southeast?

Pat Tillett said...

Sheryl - I think I've been there! But can't quite remember...
