I uploaded this shot to Flickr last night cos i want to make some Moo cards to use as tags on the stuff I make. Have you seen them? They are so cute and very good value. Anyway, I had forgotten just how special this photo is. Of all the photos I uploaded last night this one has had 29 views which is about 28 more than most of the others! Shortly after I moved here to live with Barry(2005), my Ali drove miles and miles with her two beautiful girls to come and stay with us and to see where her Mum was living. We took the girls to a MaizeMaze place and if I remember correctly, we didn't go into the maze but let the girls' play on the bouncy castle and then we went and looked at some farm animals. I love Millie's expression in this photo, the way every detail is in focus and the movement of her dress. I used my D70 camera on sport mode, the light was perfect that day. My D200 is not so automatic as the D70, I think if you own a D200 you are meant to have a bit more know how in the using department. I'm OK as long as Barry is with me, he's like my handy camera mode advisor. Mind you, if I am left to my own devices I think I do OK.....most of the time!

Brilliant timing! I love the shadow on the castle wall of Millie's hair. And the colours. And you're right: Millie's expression is magic - a really special moment captured for all time.

Hello and thanks for visiting. That photo is gorgeous - really reminds me of my daughters when they were little and the squeals of delight they made on bouncy castles.

It's a fantastic photo Marianne, I had seen the moo cards and had thought about having some, but I hadn't thought about using them for tags...a brilliant idea!

Great picture! She looks so happy. My friend had some MOO cards but she isn't happy with the quality let alone the pricing. I'm glad I chose print peppermint for my mini cards because the quality is superb but they are inexpensive.
