"I captured this moment on my iPhone, of my 3-year-old daughter, Ella. We were on our way to her first Mariners game when she fell in love with this mural just off Yesler Way."
Expert says: "This is a wonderful, tender moment. I love how Ella is mesmerized by this multicultural mural while sporting her pink tutu. Alignment of the curb, bricks and mural adds a linear aspect. Suggestion: If photographed from slightly to the left, those lines would parallel the photo's frame."
