Mum...I wanna be a photographer by 

Young Draven (8) was patiently posing for me on this long exposure (4 seconds). This young kid has already a fantastic eye for composition. Numerous times he has seen something from his perspective and with his imagination that it is only a matter of time he will come up with his own vision and surprise us all. Meanwhile he is happy to carry my tripod and press the button on my cable release.
Any sponsors out there?

I love the shape of these mangrove trees…in fact I am a devoted tree photographer just in case you haven’t noticed

    Fantastic colours Garry, love those tree too. It certainly sounds like young Draven (cool name) has a passion and will grow up to be a photographer or artist.

    had to come back….I recognise what’s left of the tree…..bloody shame it was cannabilised, but this point of view makes it look pretty good….I guess the rest of the branches will be gone soon though :(

    Outstanding colours. Draven could always make it as a statue if he gets bored of photography!
