This is a spontaneous post, as I just saw the I Heart Faces Photo Challenge on The Good Life and thought “I have a perfect photo!” so I’m entering it.

I love this photo, it captures the little one’s joy of being in the water perfectly.

Have a great ‘Water’ photo to enter? Head on over to I Heart Faces to link up or just to check out some amazing photos!

    The glowing sheen of the water is a nice contrast as well to the darkness of the wall.
