Cute Little Girl in Pink Dances on Beach

Now in: 2010-04-24-Cute-Little-Girl-in-Pink-Dances set -
I've been asked to include all of the photos of this "Cute Little Girl in Pink Dances" individual from the larger series I took, as I had posted just this one at earlier.

See the uncropped version.

Cute Little Girl in Pink Dances on the Beach during the Kite Festival. From a set of 10 photos taken in Morro Bay, CA 24 April 2010 during the fourth annual Discover Your Better Nature Parade and Kite Festival, ref. Photo by Michael "Mike" L. Baird, mike [at} mikebaird d o t com,; Shooting a Canon EOS 1D Mark III 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens for Canon SLR Cameras, handheld, polarizer.
26 April 2010 Cheryl below informed me that this image was seen in Explore - I'm honored.

10 May 2010 Creative Commons derivative use.

Lesson: Take a burst of photos, easily a hundred in a minute's time, to best capture a precious pose. Use (or crop to) Portrait mode - don't always shoot in Landscape mode.

On 06 Sept. 2011, this image was requested by Getty Images but it could not be submitted without a model release, which I could not obtain not knowing the subject.

28Nov2011 I noticed this CC use - cool Barry, thanks for using my

    Mike, a riveting photo -- absolutely one of the most beautiful child photos I've ever seen. I admire the little girl for going up on pointe, although I'm sure if her dance instructor had been there to witness it, the teacher would have had a fit -- little girls in ballet class aren't **ever** allowed to go up on pointe. All they're allowed to do is demi-pointe, which is going up on the ball of the foot, not the toe. Something about how it seriously injures still-developing bones in the foot. It's a universal rule among all dance studios until the little girls get older, about 12 or 13. THEN they're allowed to go up on their toes. Anyway, maybe she did it just for you, Mike -- quite an honor! :-)

    An endearing image, Mike! Perfect timing with her balletic form and the surf at her feet. Wish you could find the parents. They would love this.
