This is a shot of my sixteen year old son after he put his tripod away and we were heading out. He stopped and was doing some quick handheld shots when I turned and looked back. I still had my camera on the tripod so I did a quick setup while he was busy and got this shot. I want to thank everyone for all their well wishes in regards...
