Some days we just need to hang on!
This was one of those shots that you just can’t anticipate or even plan for. The child was happily climbing in and out of the tree, and in fact spent more time sitting on the bigger bough and looking out at the field beyond.
Then all of a sudden she swung off of the bough she was sitting on, grabbed the smaller limb, and instead of letting go she just hung there waiting for her body to stop swinging so that she could let go and drop straight to the ground. She didn’t even know that I had taken the picture until ten minutes later when I showed it to her.
Funny thing though. As soon as I saw the image in my camera I knew what the title needed to be when I posted it up.
