The harsh sunlight and his dark clothing contributed to my decision to make a silhouette out of this shot. It was a shoot from the hip grab shot. The shutter clicked at exactly the right time.

I took this photograph almost by accident yesterday. It came about as I was walking across the little bridge in Boston’s public garden. The young lady was seated on its top edge intently involved with her music. I wasn’t intending to take her picture until I had almost passed by. At the last second I took one quick shot from the hip and got lucky. Color wasn’t necessary.

Being a parent is never easy. Wondering what one could have done better is haunting. This photo brings back memories of what might have been.
