Love the capture with the expression of consternation and the muted, yet rich colors. Beautifully done, Michel. LF and FB

Michel Verhoef replied:

Thanks Mary for your amazing support ! Always :)

Recklinghausen, NR - Germany

I am really sure these are the sticks and stones we all have to go and to recognize one day that we are not living in paradise...! Her facial expression is fantastic! Reality of growing up!

Michel Verhoef replied:

Ha..her face has such an antique feel to it...like a Christkindl :))) thank you !

Bryn Mawr, PA - United States

Fantastic! What a universally true image! Excellent shot - how did you captuer it without looking over her shoulder??!!!! I would be dismayed as well! What an impatient and quietly stormy expression!

Michel Verhoef replied:

Thanks dear Sandy for your scene description and interpretations is very lovely ! I can remember walking by her and she must have been kneeling while cleaning her, otherwise I could never have reached so far over her shoulder...thank you for your words as ever :)

Bryn Mawr, PA - United States

Stunning! Look at howit is cold out - per the sweaters and winter jackets - and yet the sweet iced treat is melting . . .the angle of her mother or nanny's head, her hands as she blots up the spill - the hand holding this suddenly not-so-innocent goodeness where drips fall away from clothing and carriage - glorious hair -- and oh - her expression, the child almost a quiet storm in her confusion and discomfort - staring at what is causing all this mess. Marvelous - if you had captured the image 5 mintues before, she may have been smiling - no impatience, nothing but sugar and sunshine, but things do melt . . .and joy has melted to dismay and sticky fingers. The crispness of the cone and napkin and coat and stroller/carriage as opposed to the street below is excellent - also the expressions captured and the tones - bright, but cool. The angle of the lady's glasses, little girl's eyes and coat clad arm holdint the cone and the lady's hands blotting the mess form neat parallels. v/f . ..

Thanks Danielle....i had almost forgotten about this image. Maybe I will matt it than...lol..

Unadilla, NY - United States

Such a Profound Title... This Work of Art leads to so many thoughts~

Walnut Creek, CA - United States

Those ice cream cones will drip on you every time. This little lady looks like she is made at the cone...but probably more impatient with mom for messing with her while she is intent on eating her treat. Great capture as always V

Louisville, KY - United States

You have some amazing photographs. You seem to be able to capture the meaning in an ordinary moment. Great!

Thanks Darlene for your views on this one...it really stands :)

Woolwich, NJ - United States

What a beautiful moment! She's not interested in waiting one bit but is going along with Mom's program! fv

Thank you Sandi again for your wonderful words...they are such an amazing compliment :))

Kamloops, BC - Canada

Oh this is a scene that has been repeated a million times, hey, Michel? Yep. Just let me eat the darn thing, she says! Just wait til I get it off the nice jacket you got from aunt May, SHE says! I love your street photos, Michel, because each and every one is a small slice of life and is who we are! Bless you for your amazing eye! V/F

Zoetermeer - Netherlands

Such a great expression you have captured. Wonderful color and composition. vf

Zoetermeer - Netherlands

Wow....sooo well seen Darla...great mind jump to adult life ! It makes your words even more precious :)

Seven Mile Beach, Gr - Cayman Islands

Yes...I see it as the ice-cream being so delicious she does not want to wait for her mother to secure her into the stroller....I suppose this trait of impatience carries into our adult life as well when there is a pleasure that is interrupted! Michel, as with all your work...the composition is excellent...I am also taken up with the colors and tones....just wonderful! My CAT pick for MOUSE group!

Zoetermeer - Netherlands

Thanks Vitaliy for the feature in the European Artists group :)

Yaroslavl - Russian Federation

Very interesting choice of composition as a sight from behind the shoulder! The girl is absolutely unhappy to keep the ice cream away ;-) Wonderful photo, Michel!

Michel Verhoef replied:

Thanks a lot Jenny...i am sure she could finish it...kids can be impatient...lol
