I felt cheated by the post earlier, and you should also; not being able to upload an image with it. So, now you get this, and more. I took my flash and an umbrella over to see the boy. I have become the biggest amateur photo-geek in Sonoma. I tried a few shots with the flash coming through the umbrella. I liked the one above, most of all because the boy's expression, not so much what I over-added to it.
I was lured over because mom said they were dressing up in costumes. That type thing is exactly what I have been hoping to do more of lately - capturing staging and stages, the artifice of moment, hopefully as the moment takes flight and becomes something other than itself.
Little sequences, stories that can't quite be told.
