Childhood by Slairea Childhood by Slairea
The concept:

Last night I was putting to bed Emily and Maisy (the kids I'm looking after).
Everything was normal when, accidentally, I switched off the light in Maisy's room.
"Veronica, can you turn the light back on please? I don't like the dark...."
Yes, Maisy is afraid of the dark, like almost every kid and every night she falls asleep with her light on, safe and sound from the Big Bad Man who's hiding in the dark (she said).

Next to her room there is me.. a 26 years old woman who likes to sleep hugging her favourite bunny Doudou (although in the picture there is another bunny just because Doudou is too small for the concept).

So...You can be 5, you can be 26 ... No matter what, you will always have a child inside your soul :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-02-22
Childhood by Slairea is a great example of the concepts that come out of the photographers mind on a very frequent basis. Delve into her gallery to find another world. ( Suggested by Miguel-Santos and Featured by Kaz-D )

Keep that child alive! Just try not to be afraid of the dark. Or water. Apparently some people are afraid of water.

I just love this shot to bits. From the concept to the work you've done to achieve it. Fantastic.
I'm very happy that it got featured, I'm sure it has inspired many like me. Congrats, Veronica! :clap:

It's under photography, so apparently it's a photo, but I'm also confused!
It looks too real to be a painting, but too smooth to be a photo. What.

"No matter what, you will always have a child inside your soul"

but I think that having plushies and feeling comfortable around them doesn't have to do with the age or stage of development

At the age of 28, I sleep with an enormous stuffed St. Bernard named Cooper.  He's roughly 3 1/2 feet long.
