"Budding" Florist
Posted By: Techiechick, 04-02-2008, 12:19 PM

The garden show had an area for children to do "hands" on activities, this is my grand daughter Katarina, creating a floral arrangement.

She is a doll

A great shot of your granddaughter Techiechick

My 3 and 5 year old daughters work with their mom in "their" flower gardens and already know the names of the flowers better than I do.

Unfortunately the three year likes to pick them for flower pies and other art projects!

Here is her hands-on flower arrangement from the other day... Mom was less than pleased with her "handywork"... but it was fun for me

Thank you very much. Looks like your daughter made a lovely arrangement. You wife will cherish the memory later. It will be one of those stories that gets told over and over when they ar all grown up. (which happens much too quickly)

Diane, that is a really good photo of your granddaughter. If this is the original size you have lots of room for a really tight crop and with a little PP it would look nice on a wall.

Take care,

What a sweet photo of the little girl and the flower, very nice, in spite of the distracting elements that you could not help in that situation...

Thank you Heinrich, actually this is the reduced for forum size. I did do a tight crop of her where she appears to be concentrating on the flower. The cropped image creates a completely different presentation to the image.

Thank you very much Julie. I plan on printing it and giving it to her other Grandma for mothers day. Her other Grandma is really into flowers and will enjoy it I'm sure.

Thank you Dave, I'll keep that in mind, however I hope that will be in about 20 years?

Thank you very much, I did crop some of the left side, but didn't want to crop anymore, as it made her look crowded. I wanted the image to display what was happening in the shot. I did do a close crop of just her face and the flowers, which presented a completely different story. It looked like a little girl concentrating on a flower rather than creating an arrangement.

What a great shot Diane. Love the expression and concentration. Impressive capture. I'm terrible at portrait photography, and am always amazed at what others can caputre.

I really like the expression on your grand daughters face concentrating on the flower (or leaf). Nice capture.
