2015 Deck – Week 24

In today’s world, it often seems that the old tradition of “family” has fallen by the wayside.  The divorces are common, marriages not worth fighting for, child abuse seems more commonplace than before, parents and children yelling at each other; it even seems sometimes that some people care more for their pet than for their own flesh and blood relatives, so when I saw a father and son working together on a motorcycle, I just had to sneak a photo of it.

It may not always be this way, but like much of our lives, its these moments that matter most.

Mother and Child

This photo has been a favoured one since I took it, but I’ve never shared it because I had always thought that the focus was soft and might be detracting to some viewers, but the composition, the light and the processing were all just right for me.

This was taken on Chinese New Year’s day 2013, it is my sister-in-law, Romina, and her son (my nephew) Nathan.

I don’t normally do portraits, but I usually make exceptions for family, this, on the other hand, was more of a candid photo rather than a posed portrait.
