Pretty woman…

I don’t know whose idea it was to pose this lad with a smile on his face and a hand on his happy place, but I guess I’m responsible for recording the moment for posterity.  This was  a great night, strolling around a tropical paradise with kids getting to experience it for the first time.  Were it not for this photo, that funny, spontaneous, and ultimately fleeting moment in time would probably be long since forgotten, lost amid so many other fine memories of the trip.  That’s what a photo can mean when it works.  You can’t stop time, and who would want to, but sometimes with just a little help you can bring it back to life, if only for a little while.  (12 March, 2004  Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii)
