    The hallway is a stage for the theater of family life. Our daughters somersault and crawl across the carpeting. The narrow space is an arena for games of floor hockey. The dog chases endless balls up and down its length. And on occasions like the one pictured here, it is a place for debate and diplomacy. Sure, it serves the architectural purpose of connecting the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, and living rooms. Symbolically, though, it's the intersection where our family finds each other.

    This image says so much with body language.I love that the photographer decided to get lower to the ground either by bending down or dropping to a knee. This positioning makes all the difference. Rather than looking down on the scene from a grown person’s perspective we see the scene from the little girl’s level. This brings the viewer into the scene, immersing them into the drama. Lastly, the caption is beautifully written. Excellent job!!
