As most of you know, I don’t photograph things that move and 4-year-old grandsons definitely fall within the “continuously moving” category.
So, time spent with our little guy is generally sans camera. But on a trip to the local playground, I decided to take it along.
Yes, there are poles growing out of his head and I had to clone additional leaves in the background to mitigate the blown-out sky.
But somehow I managed to capture that look of pure joy on their faces – grandpa and grandson, sharing a moment of laughter before the exhilarating ride to the bottom. If there is an image that illustrates the bond between Elliot and his Pop-Pop, this is it.
My heart wants to explode with love for them both. My two boys.
How very lucky I am.
To my friends in the States, Happy Fourth! May your day be filled with brightly-colored fireworks!
