17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Caught in a moment

This is my daughter playing behind the curtain in the morning sunlight. I liked how the blinds cast their shadows in a 3-dimensional way. I was quite lucky to capture her when she blinked in the split of a second. Here she seems as if sleeping but she was in the middle of a play just looking away from the harsh sun. The shadow play is only there for an hour or so switching angles fast.
