This is a portrait of our eldest son Cameron. After being out on the ocean fishing we were all just relaxing, having coffee and looking out over the water. I snapped this photo of him. It was unplanned but as I turned and caught this view of him looking out over the ocean it was impossible not to want to capture him in a photo Everything stood out his relaxed body stance, the wonderful deep colors ……. I said stay put, don’t move… Just a right moment in time.
This is for you Cameron and memories of a perfect holiday.

    Oh sis!
    This is THEE best I’ve ever seen. What a handsome, wonderful young man. And yes you did so right capturing that look, of maybe wishing he lived there? Enjoying that fantastic holiday? Wondering about tomorrow? Only he knows what was in his mind. This is truly a beautiful beautiful portrait of Cam sis. Another order perhaps??? A fave for me for sure.

  • Sis, how do I thank you enough for your words?? Thank you. Yeah he is handsome isn’t he… Of course I’m not biased in the least :>)) Leslie
