BEWARE!!!  (...of my goofy son!) by Linda Costello Hinchey


Small (15.5" x 23.2")

Available to buy on…

Thankfully, with camera in hand, I captured this photo of my 12 yr old son playing with part of a costume on. This was a once in a life time capture (no pun intended). Keep in mind that the only editing done to this image was to make it grey scale. Oddly, this was taken in the heat of the summer and my son was wearing a tank top. It wouldn’t have had the same effect if he would have had a long sleeved shirt on. As luck would have it, the light was hitting at an advantage too. Makes for a great creepy Halloween shot! Boys this age love to scare! I love the color version of this, just as much. Camera Info.- Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi
“*Grim Reaper
The grim reaper looks very scary,
But it’s not really what he intends.
With his scythe and his hood,
He is misunderstood,
He really just wants to be friends. *”

    Brilliant, and kids will be kids, I love it :)

  • Thank you so much, Berns! Yes, you are so right… “Kids WILL be kids”! I forgot to mention the fact that this is sooo uncharacteristic of my older son here! (not of my younger, 4yr. old, son, though!) Which made this shot all the more amusing for me.
