Those magical years

Something else I spotted the day we photographed in Petoskey. Then I played with it in Photoshop. It reminds me of a haiku by my teacher, Kiyoko Tokutomi. She wrote it about her grandchildren, her great treasure, but it applies to these children, too. I think. They have the grace of unselfconscious movement.

children have such beautiful
arms and legs

Tomorrow I plan to go into town again to photograph the children's choirs (who have come from all over the world) singing in the park. Noon to 7. I'll take a folding chair and then people will walk in front of me just as I press the shutter. Good night.
