Such is the wonder of childhood

A young child watches a street performer go through his act on Patrick’s Street, Cork last Saturday as part of the St. Patrick’s Festival 2006.

    Just tuned into your site after many weeks. I love your photo of the girl on shoulders. I guess I love, partly, because I have a much younger daughter and it points me in a certain direction.

    She looks in awe. Such a candid shot, I like the DOF with the people in the front.

    the face and the pink dress are the key here 🙂 I love this photo. (Hm, it’s been a while since my last photoblog-walking 😉 )

    Focus lock – so simple yet so effective. Presumably there was a low F stop too?

    Fantastic work sir!

    It was as low as I could go which when zoomed was probably f/4 or f/5. When I’m out and about on a dull day I usually shoot with the aperture wide open so the shutter speed is fast enough to avoid the shakes!
