I’m Gunna Hug You Like A Big Bear! RUOAAAR!

A father has some fun with his youngest child, wrestling with her and giving her a big hug. I’m not sure, but the Father looks a lot like Justin Norris who is a very famous local Swimmer – a Dual Olympian, Olympic Medalist and Triple Commonwealth Gold Medalist. His young kids where both very Brave little skaters – dropping into the shallow end and then turning high up the on the 13 foot high deep end.

The shot was taken with a Canon 450D and a standard Canon 55 – 250 mm lens set at:
F-stop: f/5
Exposure time: 1/1600 sec
ISO speed: ISO-400
Exposure bias: -0.3 step

Hand Held

I enjoy the whole creative process from beginning to end and seek to discover and portray the world in all of it’s rich, intense colours and interesting forms, textures and subjects. I draw inspiration from the harmonious colour schemes often present in the natural environment when creating my Graphic Designs, or composing a Photograph or other work.

    aw that’s so sweet James, a lovely capture! …i wonder if it is Justin Norris!?

  • He used to live across the other side of the Harbour in a place called Stockton – maybe he still does? It’s only a 15 – 20 minute drive to this bowl from there, so it might be him. I’ll ask him next time I’m there.

    I got two shots and they were really similar but this one seemed just a Tad better for the poses. Thanks again for your support and your great attitude. :-)
