Photograph of a child in red.

I had this image in my mind for a while.  Each year I get some red hibiscus to go by my pool and this year I happened to have a red dress that was a similar colour.  The hardest part of getting this portrait of my child was to get her to stop laughing for a second as I was precariously balanced on an old step ladder and one of my other children was wobbling it as I was stood on it.   She did do that and I love the result.  It shows me a glimpse of what she will look like when she gets older, which is happening much to quickly.
