composition & angle I don't love makeup on little girls. I think we're increasingly losing our ability to accept natural beauty ♥ This little one is crazy beautiful, too.

A little girl with long pony tails and hair ribbons standing in the street, in front of an open doorway, holds doll. Her dark dress is reminiscent of a sailor's suit with it's double row of buttons and pinstripes. A pointed lace collar makes the style more feminine.

As you can see there is a standing post behind the girl. And she is ALIVE! This is not a postmortem photo. There is no such thing as a standing PM photo. Her eyes are painted in. This is because the exposure time was more then 10 minutes and eyelids move thus become blurry on the photo.
