Living Arrows - 38/52

ISO 320, 35mm, f/3.5, 1/5000

Theo had a cold last week and though he soldiered through it, he spent much of the time on a precarious cliff edge of tears. I took this photo after a trip down the slide had tipped the balance. In the series of images before and after you can see him laughing one moment and looking thoughtful the next. Young children experience such a range of emotions I like to ensure that the images I take of him reflect that.

At three, he has just started full days at nursery and combined with some busy weekends he is still trying to build the stamina to keep up. But with all the fresh air and exercise he does at least sleep very well.

  1. Oh my goodness, the fresh perfectly tugging at the heartstrings.

  2. Lovely photo. Theo is always wearing a cowboy neckerchief. It reminds me of my son when he was about 6 and wanted to wear his denim baseball cap day and night!

  3. Amazing shot of that point in time and emotion. He looks so much older than N who'd also 3.

  4. What a beautiful child and a superb shot😄

  5. Oh bless him... those tear filled eyes! It's an amazing photo, you've captured the emotion beautifully. xx

  6. Oh love him! I actually love seeing serious little faces just as much as big grins. He's such a cutie x
