This would have been so much cooler ...


... if the mom had moved.

So there we were, meandering about Montmartre, when this sweet girl dressed in deep red steps in front of a matching wall.

Photo op!

But no. The mom in blue stayed close. Protecting her innocent daughter from the selfish camera-toting chick who wanted nothing more than that red-on-red shot.

Mom: 1. Nichole: 0.

Still a nice photo with great color. I love the teens face she looks like she wishes the Mom wasn't in the picture too.

Jenna – I know, I thought about that (and agree with you), but it was more my little vision being pounced on.

I like the blue. She provides contrast against the girl, otherwise I wonder if the girl would have just blended in with the wall. I think it makes for a more interesting photo (to me).

I love it the way it is. It is kind of like your mom is always somewhere in the background of your life.
I agree with Jenna, I think the contrast is makes the girl pop out even more.
