Default This is the closest I get to street shooting like Harj

We had a Lollipop Day at my Temple, to raise funds for a new children's playground.



We had a very broad definition of lollipop - basically almost any kind of dessert that can be put on a stick including gummy bears, cupcake-shaped brownies, and strawberries, all with various types of self-serve toppings. (People a mile away were getting sugar highs.)

I was really enjoying photographing the kids. (Atlthough Elizabeth here, is 13 going on 18...)





We had face-painting.













More in the next post.

We had games for the kids. This one was carry-an-egg-on-a-spoon. Watch the girl on the front right.



While everyone else was dropping their eggs, she took off like a rocket (relatively speaking).



Definitely the next Danica Patrick.

In Buddhism one spends a lot of time meditating to develop what's called "single-pointed focus". We didn't know that a chocolate frosting covered brownie accomplishes the same mind-state.







I think this one is my favorite - a mother and her son.



Thanks for looking - I mostly do landscapes, not portraits so this was fun.

Hey Ted

I like those a lot.. and even better than what I could do!

You know what caught my eye in all of the pics is that everyone has a sparkle in their eyes ... you don;t see that too often

Great shots Ted. KIds are so much fun to shoot. Once they get over you and the camera, they're so natural.
Do you get to post them in the Temple for the kids to find themselves..?

Hey harj, ya beat me to it

Thanks to all for your kind comments. Regarding the sparkle in their eyes, everyone was having a great time and coincidentally that seemed to make the photography a lot easier.

Fantastic pictures with vivid colors, love the expression of the little girl with her 3rd eye on blue and pink.
