By woodlark  
... Dr Dre who popularized the use of explicit lyrics in rap to detail the violence of street life looks over an innocent child in Manchester.

Im chuffed to bits with this shot (taken this afternoon). The lighting, the blue shoes against the bluey grey building, the movement in the coat tales, Dr Dre looking on and the fact I didn't get punched for taking it.

Thanks for looking...

Fabulous. It's a gift that she was wearing blue shoes but the movement and context are the essentials.
Can't give my award for another week, damn it.

Not surprised you're chuffed! The child, the blue shoes, positioned just there with Dr Dre looking down... wow! AND she's dancing ... she's hearing the music - it's moving her Smile. Fantastic!

Just fabulous work Karl, congrats on the EC badge.
The movement is essential, is as if Miss Blue Shoes is hearing the music.
Quality work, deserving of its accolade.
