As a group of people cleared out, I saw my chance to get a photo of the statue with no one around it. I snapped one quickly with my iPhone, but saw that this photo captured a real little girl, ready to take her shot.
I love how the second photo shows a second-thought. The split moment between standing on the sides watching someone else take theirs and actually jumping up.
In the next photo, you can see she is looking right at me. At this moment we smiled at each other, and it is something I will never forget. The moment we made eye contact, she started walking up to the girl.
