A glimpse of hope by ReachingFlames A glimpse of hope by ReachingFlames
This is such a cute girl! Oh hm, when taking this photo I was drowning in her eyes... I met her at the Boom Festival, in Idanha-a-Nova, Portugal. When I spoke to the grandmother, she said:

"Oh yes she is so cute. When we were building all of this, we had to cut big parts of wood. When cutting it, she was dancing on the sound of it. And it made me so happy, because it's obvious she has the feeling of dancing in her heart like I have."

I'm a young artist, so PLEASE respect the copyright... I hate watermarks...


Thank you!

Yay thanks for not using watermarks, I really hate them too. Thanks for letting us enjoy such a beautiful piece. The expression that you caught (on that baby´s face) is mesmerizing. Congratulations

Well, thank you for sharing!

I see literally hundreds of submissions to the group every week, and then I try and browse dA as much as I can. This particular shot has really stuck with me since I first saw it - I have even included it in my scrolling favourites on the front page of the club!

So, lovely is a tad understated! :)

Oh I haven't noticed that! Thank you again!
I've never been very good with portraits, and this photo is a shot like I wanted for a long time. Because you see so many portraits every day, it's such a compliment that you get fascinated my mine.
