It wouldn’t matter if I went blind tomorrow because the ancient expression on her young, young face has been scratched in to my memory. I don’t generally post little kid pictures on the internet because there’s this thing where they have no choice, yet, but already by the time they are ready to be interested in the internet they have an internet presence. It’s weird! Like a million little child stars or something. But I had to make an exception because I like the composition, K’s expression, and the fact that even in bright mid-day sun one can still catch amazing light with enough tiny, little curls.
This picture comes from a series of images I took when the Northhaven/Isle au Haut branch of our family was in town. Family visit got coupled with boat-buying excursion and my 15-year-old cousin purchased a lobster boat with the money he’d earned hand-hauling traps for the last three years. Congratulations, Ethan!
We’re so proud of him and I’m looking forward to playing sternman for a day if I can manage to get over the bucket-as-a-bathroom system and invest in a gallon of sunscreen before we head out. Either that or I can come along and take pictures like these:
