So certainly appears to be giving it some great thought! What a wonderful shot, and of such a pretty girl!
Brilliant photo and post title!Happy Monday!Betty
seriously considering her wish I think
Hmmmmm.....don't believe I see a rainbow in that image.
You know, as a kid, I often wondered that as well.
Aha. The universal question of the mind;)
I have often had these same thoughts myself...Love this picture!
You mean she didn't jump in?! ;)
so contemplative ... thoughtful moments captured
baygirl - Knowing her, she was probably really thinking about lunch.Betty M - Thanks Betty! Same to you!Mynx - I wonder if her wish was to figure it out!pitchertaker - Not even a hint of one...Alex - I usually didn't just wonder, I usually found a way to get at least a few.Dawn - All the great thinkers have pondered this same thing... All for some loose change!Bossy Betty - I'm betting you found a way... Thanks!Oilfield Trash - Thanks so much!Nancy - I dared her to, but she refused!Sharon - Not a chance! Maybe if it was warmed up first.
Diane - She's is very contemplative. What she contemplates is sometimes sort of zany!
It's in-poderable. Get it? In- sorry... I'm in a weird mood. Great picture.
Is she really thinking of how to get to the coins or about the wish she has just made..?Have a great week Patrick.Costas
her concentration is impressive. what I love about this photo is not only the subject, but what's going on in the background too. As Letterman used to say - "what about those people?" fantastic shot Pat. and I recommend enlarging, as you suggest. have a fun day.
Please tell me that's an older photo??? Her hair hasn't grown THAT MUCH since she cut it, has it?Love the photo!!!
I love the pose...and what a great caption!
yes, the question of the decade...lovely picture capturing a sweet moment.
how adorable and that's my thought to how to get them and not get caught
I loved throwing coins in a fountain and making a wish when I was young. It was kind of magical!
Wonderful caption, and such a lovely photo. :)
Ahhh, I've often wondered that myself!http://sbpra.com/tracyspaine/
Cute picture, Pat.... I can almost hear her say that she'd LOVE to have those coins... Maybe (if you had have stuck around a little while) you could have gotten a picture of her IN the water... ha ha Have a great day tomorrow, Pat.Betsy
What a beautiful portrait! I also think your choice of black and white really enhances the thoughtful mood, one that we can certainly relate to whether it be pennies tossed into a fountain, or anything else we desire out of life.PS: The Saguaros are a few miles west of the north entrance to Joshua Tree National Park on the 62, on the left hand side (if you're coming from our direction).
Oh wow, I love this picture!!
Perfect! In today's economy--not a bad thought! She's awesome!J
Another one of those timeless photos.
Clearly, she won't budge until she figures this one out. Great shot. She's a natural.xoRobyn
I've often had that though myself.
Tim - Thanks! (I don't get it, but it's probably me, not you)Costas - Knowing her, she's probably thinking about both.Ms Becky - I'm with you! I always examine the background of photos I see. Thanks!Ms A - No, this was before it she cut it last. She likes to let it grow and then donate it. Thanks!Marlene - Thanks Marlene!Rekha - Thanks so much!becca - I've always thought that. I also always wondered what happens to the coins when they clean them out.Belle - Me too! I still do it...Diana - Thanks so much Diana!Tracy - I'm sure people have figured it out.Betsy - Thanks Betsy! She did ask about what happens to the money.Stickup Artist - Thanks so much! I'm a bit odd, but I usually think most photos look better in B&W (escept most scenery shots).Baby Sister - Thanks so much! She liked it also.John - Yep! It's come down to stealing pennies out of a fountain!altadenahiker - I must have a thousand of her. I really don't like taking portraits, but she has an interesting face.Robyn - Yep! She's still standing there...
That's a great picture! I'd help her but then my paws would get wet!
**PST come back when it's dark!**
I heard from the owner they drain the fountain at 11:32pm
It's all about capturing the moment with photography.Delightful!
she's quite a lovely girl. maybe she threw so many coins for so many wishes ;)
I have a similar picture of my two granddaughters from the last time I visited them in Austin...except the three year old has her arm in the water up to her shoulder trying to reach the money!
She almost looks upset, like maybe she threw in a quarter thinking it was a nickel and now is contemplating going after it.
Pat, what a lovely photo. Taylor is certainly a beautiful girl. You photo immediately took me back to when I was that age. I felt as if my whole world were in turmoil and nothing would ever make sense again. I would have been wondering where the tradition of tossing coins in a fountain came from? Or, questioning the logic of tossing away a good coin on wishes when it could purchase a Slo Poke, cherry coke or enough gum to last me a week? Back then a Slo Poke was certainly better than dreams or some old wish.
Enlarging this shot is the key to seeing all you were able to capture...amazing. The girl is so consumed by what she is seeing. Love the long hair. Beautiful as always.
I've wondered that myself. I do love fountains, coins or not.
This blog is dude-worthy. And I love the pictures.Finally a good man-blog.
I loved water fountains as a kid - and I still do! We have a water fountain outside our building and sometimes I toss pennies in and make wishes. I'm probably violating the strata rules, but who cares. A wish is a wish! Thanks for sharing this cute photo with us! - G
Do you know what's sad? I wonder that sometimes.
Oh what an awesome photo! So deep in thought! Yep, if only she could get to those coins... ;)
Ah yes, probably a question that has kicked around the corners of every child's mind at one time or another. She does seem to be quite intent on it though. You may want to check her pockets.Darryl and Ruth : )
This reminded me of how once, when I was about 6 years old, I wanted to toss a coin into the fountain at the local mall. I was so excited to possibly have my cherished wish come true, I accidentally tossed my entire coin purse instead of just one coin.I had the janitor come out to get my purse. I think any grown man would do anything in the world to stop a little girl from crying. And screaming.ツ my cyber house rules dot com
The picture really so beautiful as the girl thoughtfully. A greeting.
That's a great photo Pat and it's perfect in monochrome. She is in deep contemplation, probably devising a complicated machine to extract the coins without having to get wet.
Yeah, she is thinking in teh coins ;-)
