Friday Foto - Why I love this image


Today's image is from a shoot I did a while ago - I'm preparing some images for my professional qualifications and in doing so revisiting some older images for evaluation.  This one was taken during a shoot I did to raise money for a charity - and as with most shoots of toddlers they tend to do their own thing a lot of the time and you are watching and waiting to capture a unique moment.  This was taken near the end of the session and the little boy was holding a dandelion when he decided to turn and run away from me.  Knowing I didn't have much time it was a rare occasion when I quickly flicked the settings to auto to capture the moment.  As many Mum's of small boys will tell you - this capture's perfectly what we see of our young children so much of the time and so provides a timeless image and memory.
