    When sunshine meets water....magic happens. I was trying to convey how magical a kiddi pool can be to a child. This is my daughter playing with 2 small mermaid dolls passed down from her older sisters. This pair live in our bathroom and they get to go outside every summer :) My daughter was dripping water from her fingers onto the dolls..... the sparkles were mesmerizing! At first I was just photographing the mermaids when I noticed her painted toes and included them too! Simple pleasures :)

    Simple pleasures indeed! This shot makes me so happy. Love your creative thinking here and how you have made the most of the elements in the frame - color, texture, minimalism, and moment! Great shot!
