This photograph, taken by Sarah Whitmeyer, was awarded 4th place in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2011 Q2 Contest.
A moment before this frame was taken, I noticed the flower girl trying to get someone's (probably her mom) attention. I started taking photos of that and then when she got whomever's attention she was trying to get, she lit up and waved at her! So cute! Right place, right time.
- There's a wonderful innocence in the moment, accentuated by how the young girl's perfectly framed tilt and smile, and the fact that she's the only one whose face is seen, breaks from the controlled, erect symmetry of everyone else in the photo.,
