This is Fox, my grand-nephew by prior-marriage, remarriage, and love. I claim him as my own, of course, although neither he nor his parents have any shared DNA.

I went to help his mom for a couple of hours one day... since she's very pregnant with his sister... and he and I ate mud and pizza.

Well... he ate pizza. :D

It was fun to be a child again.

Is it my best image of 2015? Most likely not.

But... I love it. It catches my eye every time I scroll through my F: drive looking for anything.

I usually don't even enter Free Studies... much less "Best of"s... yet here I am... against my will... against my better judgment, most likely...

Do with us as you will. I love the image because it makes me happy to re-live the day... and the days of childhood... my own and my children's and... my grand-nephew's. *grin*

I hope you at least smiled... just a little bit... even if it was only in your memory. And... please vote me low so I will never again be tempted to enter this "Best of" type challenge again.

Isn't that what photography is all about - memories? I think you know exactly what you are doing.

surely this is posthumous as a child?

Pizza and mud. It's what little boys are made of. A ten for you.
