Full of Wonder

Wonder: to have a feeling of awe, admiration, marvel.


When I heard the I ♥ Faces theme for this week was wonder, I didn't have to think twice about which picture I would use. I just love this picture of Cami at the Grand Canyon and think it just epitomizes the very definition of WONDER!

**Special Note: Cami was never in any danger. There was solid ground just a few feet below that ledge.**

Perfectly epitomizes the very nature of awe.

One of my favorite pictures that you have ever taken.

Great job.

Oh my gosh! I'm going to have a heart attack. I hope there was something under that cliff. Absolutely awesome (although nerve wracking) picture! :)

As a mom who can't even stand to have her kids go near the open railings on the second floor of the mall...your photo is freaking me out!

But it's also making me feel a complete sense of awe and wonder. What an amazing capture and entry to this week's contest. Fantastic!

Julie Rivera Photography said...

Can I reach out there and help her back from the ledge?! My dad would have heart failure viewing this one, like so many others who left comments! And that just means you captured a brilliant moment and there is no doubt about the wonder of it all!

I love seeing all the people commenting on your picture Lara! It really is amazing! Tom keeps talking about how tall Cami looks in the picture. I told him she is actually pretty short. Am I right?

Carebear said...

I've looked through 120 photos of wonder today, and this is my hands-down favorite! Awesome shot. I'm so jealous of your talent!

Kristi said...

Wow. This is fabulous. It also is the scariest darn picture I've ever seen. Weren't you scared to death that she was going to fall?
