Mom & Son
 
This picture is taken at the Roosevelt Mansion in Hyde Park this weekend. It’s of a mom having a moment with her son.

The mom handed her son the camera then ran around him while he chased her, him taking pictures of her both laughing and crying. They were running around all alone surrounded by Nature that I couldn’t resist taking a shot.

Eventually, they made their way to where I stood and while I had my face pressed to my camera’s viewfinder taking pictures of a tall maple tree above, I heard the woman cry out laughing, “Take a picture of the guy with the camera!”

When I looked down I saw the little boy beaming at me camera in his hands waiting for me to say something.

I said, “Aw, I should have posed.”

They then ran off again laughing and crying.

I was happy to be a spectator. Now I’m part of their memories, too. I only hope I did my part well...

Ah, now here is the kind of memory a camera keeps best. Nice shot.

It didn't even occur to me to look at it in full resolution -- so I did just now.

Wow, I remember the child's happy face when he took my picture now I can hear him laugh and cry all over again... :)

Thanks, DRGSin!

This is really a nice shot. Unposed, spontanious, wonderful!

I'd crop a little off the original, not a close crop (I know, I know, you just wanted to give us a better look, and thanks for that).

I agree about the crop -- there's a 1024 limitation on the site, I think, so I resized it to that. I wanted to impress their aloneness so I actually wanted to even crop some of the top and some of the bottom to make it almost a long horizontal line to convey expansive space surrounding them.

Thanks, Dave!
