Playing in the Sand

While shooting a few informal portrait/beach photos for a friend, I noticed the daughter of another friend was enjoying playing in the sand, unaware of anything else going on around her.

I didn’t even have time to compose on this shot; I wanted it to be at her level, so I had to focus first and then hold the camera low and level; I love the purity and carefree spirit is seems to show.
