Corner View: Emotion

I took LOTS of pictures during my five day visit
with my daughter and her family.
So I may be 'drawing' from them for awhile
for various topics.

To 'illustrate' emotion for corner view this week,
I chose to spotlight the facial expressions and body language
of my 18 month-old granddaughter Abby.

(Seeing the various kiddie and child pools and sprinklers
at an afternoon gathering of mothers and children.)

She is a swimmer already and had just showed off.
But apparently something got her upset.
Note the happy expression on the face of the girl climbing in
and the curiosity on the other girl's face.

Hungry.  She likes her food and cookie/pretzel snacks are a special treat for her.
She's really into the eating part!

This is her content, resigned, pensive passenger expression
where she sits quietly and observes the world around her.

Happy mother and daughter.

I honestly don't remember what she or I was doing at the time of this photo.
What do you think her emotion is?

And finally, I love the determination in her big brother Aaron's face here.
When he takes on a task, he is very determined to finish it.

For an eclectic collection of views on emotion,

  13. I do love the expressions of all the children playing with water - the first and the last one of Aaron's determined face. He looks as if he was on a mission to finish a project. Sweet photos and you must have had a wonderful time. Look forward to more photos of your grandchildren.
