I rarely venture into portraiture, but this little girl on the plane caught both my eye and my camera. I offer her as the subject for “Challenger’s Choice” and hope you find her as cute as I did.  (Even though it appears that Mom is wearing a nun’s habit or something similar, it’s only the seat back.)

Feel free to join in the challenge if you like to take photos with any non-traditional camera.  We’re a friendly group and always enjoy new company. A link to Sally’s site will be here once she’s put up her post, approximately 8 am EST.


  1. Enjoy street portraiture and think this is a wonderful composition. The child is adorable and I actually like that the mother looks like she is wearing a head scarf – would never have known that was a seat back if you hadn’t mentioned it.

    She is really very cute. Nice take.

  3. Janet, your capture brought a smile to my early morning. That expression on the child’s face is one of several adjectives. She seems content and yet inquisitive, and even in the brief edge of the mother, there is a glow of pride. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • She was also well-behaved which, when I’m trapped on a plane, is greatly appreciated. She was smiling at everyone and, as you say, very content.

    She is so cute!

  5. Goodness, what a sweet face. I’m generally not a fan of children in general (I want to start a family of small dogs, not kids) but this one looks to cute to resist!

    • She was a cutie and so well-behaved, although I bet she can get into some mischief. Of course the best part of children from this distance is that you can smile at them, make faces at them, and not do any of the heavy lifting. 🙂

    Wonderful portrait, Janet. The composition is spot on.

  7. Oh, what a cutie! And I can feel the warmth of that mother’s love from here.

  8. So adorable. She is such a cutie

    She is cute, Janet. Her eyes are so innocent and I like a faint smile that she is wearing. Street photography and portraits make me conscious but I always admire them.
