Early this week on a particularly misty morning, I sat on a Maine beach content to be doing pretty much nothing but watch my kids enjoy the sand and the water. But, it wasn't long before my camera came out with a 70-200mm lens attached and I began to poach photographs. After making many frames, I was reminded of something I already knew. No subject that I photograph will ever be as compelling to me or as interesting as my kids. I believe this is definitely one part parental pride, but I also think something more universal is also at play. There's a fascination with kids being kids. Maybe it's something we miss, maybe it's just heart warming to see kids play. I'm not sure, but I sure do enjoy making these photographs and thank you for letting me share them.
