Photographed on August 9, 2009

In August I drove up to Calgary to attend the iStockphoto “HQ ‘lypse”, an event where iStock artists get together and create images/videos/illustrations to license on the website. This was one of the last few images I photographed, and it ended up being not only my favorite from the event, but from the entire year. Those little kids were so cute and had so much fun, and you can really see it in their expressions.
