Taken at a Civil War Re-enactment ... did it in Sepia and added grain as would be appropriate for the times. This is the full version of my photo "Little Soldier". ........................................................................... This looks like a posed photo but this wee person was totally unaware of the having their photo taken ... I was across a small field (250mm) and this little soldier was under a canopy due to the rain. .......................................................................................................................................................

Haunting! I had to look a couple of times to see if this was in fact a "ghost" image. The clothing kind of disappears into the background. Love the expression on the child's face.

Fabulous, Nancie. Quite the little model you have there. It looks as vintage as you meant it to be!

Sorry for the late reply ... we have been camping and no internet. This little person was so fascinating ... I love catching children unaware, they are so natural and unassuming. I agree, the eyes really were what I noticed first when I took the photo! Thanks so much for the comment and all!!!

Thank you ... I was lucky to catch the little soldier at just the right moment ... it is so special when that happens! And children are so much less aware of what is going on around them getting candid shot is so much easier!
