Fairy eyes

"Sue Hilliker, who plays the part of the "Fairy Godmother," sprinkles pixie-dust onto McKayla Smith, 7, during the Princess Festival in the Eagle Mountain City Council chambers at the library, Saturday, Feb.13, 2010."

I'm back on the morning shift, which means Saturday morning assignments.

To keep myself sane, I try not to venture out late on Friday nights with friends knowing I'll have to get drag myself out of bed super early.

Last weekend was no exception. I was in my car heading southwest to Eagle Mountain way too early. I was in zombie mode.

I feel like every time I head out there for a scheduled standalone event it's always canceled and I end up searching for another feature on my own.

But this time around, the princess day festival at the local library was still on.

Now to divert for a second, I told a friend to go out and shoot artsy photos of the east coast snow. They've been getting case you live under a rock.

Since they are not a photographer, they said no and explained: "I'd feel like a complete idiot standing in the middle of the road taking pictures. Someone would probably call the cops on me."

I instantly laughed, telling them they'd never be a photojournalist if they worried about what others thought of them taking pictures.

Case in point, being the only male in a room of 50 some little girls and their mothers at a princess festival, all while taking their pictures. Hahaha.

Anyways, I hung around for about an hour, but it was one of my first photos I shot when I walked through the door that I liked the most. The "Fairy Godmother" had these big, creepy eyes, well, in my opinion.

Good times. Only one more week and then I am back to the night shift! Woohoo!

Nice moment, but I'm wondering why did you leave it so green?
