Posed but poised

I have resurrected this photo from a May visit to London’s Southbank to bring a bit of a warm glow to the next few days of cold and wet weather.

It matters not that I missed her feet and the top of the umbrella – it was this green-eyed girl’s smile I was aiming to capture. After her father had taken the photo I asked if I could too- he agreed and she was willing. I did not want to make her pose for long so this was the snappiest of snapshots as the rain came down again.
