These photos are very special to me - some of the most powerful images I have ever shot, I guess. I had a walk with my family in a park about a year ago and took my camera with me. I took a few black-and-white shots of my niece being herself and enjoying the walk. The cloudy sky required low shutter speeds, so I ended up at 1/30 s, I guess. This caused a very special blurry atmosphere in certain parts of the images, like hands and feet, while others remained still. Since I couldn't always focus properly the photos turned out kind of dynamic and alive. Most of the images were taken from a low angle, which shows the world from the perspective of a child. I really like the results and made prints for my niece and her parents.
