Photograph taken by Blake Clausen, Amateur Photographer.
I love this photograph. It captures the child’s innocence and enthusiasm. The dripping popsicle in her hand, the melted chocolate all over face, neck, dress and legs, and her disheveled hair represent the transient condition that is childhood. Her little balled up fists illustrates the child’s unmindful concentration on the half melted Dora the explorer popsicle and her ultimate contentedness in this very moment.
