We all have the innate ability to be still and not be part of the whirlwind that is generated by all of our obligations, worries, needs, desires and fears. As long as we can take refuge to a place in which we can be still. Like this boy. In the midst of a busy street during nationwide festivities, he decided to drift off. In the comfort of knowing that with mummy everything is just fine, he simply let go.
How wonderful is that?
I did a shoot recently of a band that covers The Beatles. An excellent band and the musicians are dear friends of mine. As I was hopping on and off the stage taking pictures, I also took a walk among the audience. I came across this mother swaying around her son. It was a lovely sight seeing them having fun and to see the boy totally surrendering to his mum. They say to cherish every moment of your child’s childhood and they are absolutely right. This little boy will be a grown man one day and not to be swayed around so easily like this any more 😉
