Some of you may remember this post from earlier this year. http://lightnindan.xanga.com/760866146/millstream-park--meeting-another-large-family/
We live in a small town and had taken the kids down to the park, when we met another large family. Their little boy insisted I take his picture and wouldn't be refused. Fast forward to yesterday at our town's homecoming parade. We have become friends with them and they happened to be near where our family had staked out a spot to observe. My son, Danny, who took the photography class with me earlier this year, had a rare moment where the camera was his alone.
Danny's the kid dressed like Dr. Who in the middle of this picture taken by my daughter, Samantha.
I was at work and my fifteen year old (another aspiring photographer) was in the parade. He did an ok job getting pictures of the parade, but in a moment of boredom turned the camera on the little boy from the previous blog. I'm very proud of the picture he captured. He took one pic that wasn't quite in focus, then he struck gold.
I think we have an up and coming photographer here. It's funny because he very seldom gets the camera to himself, but when he does, he never fails to get a shot or two that are just really good. Maybe I'm just a proud father, but I really think he's a bit of a natural. It would be an amazing thing for me, as an old man looking back, to see that I had passed along a passion for a hobby that has brought me so much joy.
Here are a few more from a day when he was sitting, bored out of his skull waiting for me to compete in the Maryland truck driver championships. Amidst a sea of concrete and asphalt, he found these.
Yep, that's my boy!
