Bracken Hill: Cornelius's Sucking Baby Colette

By andreduplessis
Bracken Hill Jan 09: Colette
Continuation of the series..

This one should be viewed large please.

Maggie Simpson's match any day!
Cornelius, her dad, followed me around the estate on my 2nd visit, kindly giving me a historical overview of all the houses, and telling me who lives where.
Meanwhile this little one, who he was cradling, was noisily sucking away with incredible enthusiasm. More like a suck machine at full throttle.
In his quiet way Cornelius acknowledged that she is quite a 'good drinker'.
I feel that this is an understatement, as I am of firm belief that Colette can surely strip the bark off the surrounding pine trees. Easily.

Thanks for visiting, Andre

Excellent portrait, very "real" as I feel I connect with the child - beautifully sharp with a very good direct look and slightly raised eyebrows - good catchlights in the eyes.

Wonderful portrait of this little adorable bark stripper. Love her wide eyed expression. Like she's saying what's the big deal..you want my picture ....go for it. And by the way who are you? This is just so wonderful!

I like the fact that you can see the photographer reflecting in the eyes.
Lovely innocence.

Thank you to everyone that commented. I thought of cropping only her eyes and mouth, however, had to include the peripherals (ears), as it gave a better balance and dimension. Regards, Andre
