Photo #8: I Want to be Like Daddy

Yesterday, we saw the joy and happiness that Jim brings to his work. Today, we look at the bond between father and son.

Canon 5D/2, 35mm, 1/2000 @F2.8, ISO 100

During the family camp, I could be seen taking photographs of different activities throughout the day, but in the mornings (during the English Classes) was the time I had set aside to work on the photographs and write the story of the camp. It was the only time I had that afforded me flexibility. Usually, I would start my devotions after breakfast and then get into the writing and the clean up of the photographs.

On this morning, I ventured outside to do my devotions. The weather was perfect. The sky was a deep blue and the air was just perfect, even the mosquitos hadn't awakened from their slumber yet. I decided to take my camera with me, as you never know when a photographic moment may present itself. As I sat by the water's edge and wrote in my journal and read the Bible, this little boy made his way down to the steps where I was sitting.

He went to the left and to the right picking up stones and tossing them into the water. Soon afterwards his father came and joined him down at the water's edge. As he began to skip rocks across the water, the boy tried to do the same.

The father then walked over and sat down beside me and just took a moment to gaze into the lake that lay before him. The young boy then meandered over to his father and clumsily sat down beside him, never losing his grip on his lollipop. As the father continued to gaze over the lake, the boy struck nearly the same pose and I quickly picked up my camera and took a picture of them together. Afterwards, the boy moved closer to his dad and then I took a picture of them looking at me.

And as quickly as they sat down, they quickly got up to explore the grounds of the camp. I was then treated to an aerial display by the Czech or Russian Air Force as jets began to buzz through the sky breaking the sound barrier.

I hope today this photograph reminds you of your father and a great memory you shared together.

Well…that's today's photograph and tomorrow we will continue to hang out at the camp, so you will want to come back and check out tomorrow's picture.

I would love to hear some of your great memories of father moments. You can leave a comment here!
