Yesterday I was lucky enough to grab this quick photograph of the young lad running along the edge of the lagoon in Boston’s Public Garden. (I had a Fuji 23mm f2 lens on my XT3 camera.)
No digital devices, no plastic toys, simplicity is the key! This is one fine kid! Would that more of us follow his example.
Not for this kid.
To my mind this image is a lucky joining of personal emotion with an interesting background. This young man was sitting quietly on a bench outside of a local real estate agent. His downtrodden face seemed jarringly at odds with the pictures inside. I liked that dissonance.
He went on to climb higher until his mother, in no uncertain terms, intervened.
