With photography you have the ability to pause time, a split second held for a hundred years. For me, I love to stop time with my loved ones. This is my son walking our latest addition to the family, 'Lucky' the pup. Lucky is only 4 months old, my son is now 14.
My son won't be long starting out on his own adventures, as he explores everything the world has to offer, and this for me has mixed emotions. He'll soon 15, 16, 20, 30 and onwards it goes on, and I'll always feel I never take enough photos of him. We all hope to grow old, to have lived our dreams, to be loved and to have found love, to have stories to tell to our grandchildren in the future, and a picture helps us remember this moments just a little more clearly.
This picture is almost a metaphor for our lives together, there'll come a stretch in his own road where he must go it alone, and hopefully he'll be able to look back and see that I'll still be waiting on the far banks for him, should he ever feel the need to come back, but hopefully he'll find the courage to go on and cross those waters to the road on the other side.
As for the dog? Well, I just hope she learns to stop shitting everywhere!
Lucky having just taken a quick dip!Colder than she first thought, as you can see by the look on her face. Find your special place, create your own memories, and take as many pictures as you can, because you'll regret it if you don't.
