Photo of the day: Ad astra

Ad astra by The Bacher Family
Ad astra, a photo by The Bacher Family on Flickr.
At her brother's birthday party at the "Putting Zoo" in Puyallup, I spotted Brianna fooling around on top of one of the miniature golf structures. I didn't catch her in time to get this shot candid, but she readily recreated it for me and I shot quickly to preserve at least some of the spontaneity of the gesture. The original image included a bit of the adjacent lamp pole and batting cage behind Bri, but I much prefer this photoshopped version with those distractions removed. Now, if only the moon had been just beyond her finger!

Bri's brother is recovering from a bone marrow transplant, and the experience has been very difficult for the whole family, so this could just as easily be titled with the full Latin phrase, per aspera, ad astra: through adversity, to the stars.
