OK, this is my son and heís not so much lost as sad for missing his turn on a flying fox at a play ground. But when I look at the photo Ďlostí is what I imagine. The reason for the missed focus was me racing to consol him. No, I didnít pinch or scowl at him to make the shot, but I guess I am callus enough to slow down to take the shot.

Photos of my kids donít seem to do too well (my daughter in the Half Challenge being judged at present is at 4.8xxx) so I guess this may not do to well either. I guess I see my kids through the eyes of a father as I believe theyíre a cute as anything.

For a kid shot thatís not perfectly focused taken by a hack photographer in a Free Study Iím not expecting this to finish in the 5ís Ė probably 4.8xxx as well. But I do love the emotion and lighting captured and maybe some others may like it too.
