little boy's hand in man's hand

a trusting little boy's hand, resting in Sam's.

Sam and I were walking along the boardwalk in Wakodahatchee Wetlands earlier this week and on that particular afternoon Sam chose to use his walker as an aid. We passed a beautiful little boy, probably 2 or 3 years old, who started pointing inquiringly at the handle of Sam's walker. Then he and Sam reached their hands out to each other.

With a little encouragement from his parents he repeated this action so that I could capture the above photos, as well as some others. See Inquiring Hand and Grasping Hands.

With these photos I wish you a weekend of inquiry and loving connections.

Where might you find some new, or old, things that you can bring to it or them a childlike joy of inquiry, discovery and enjoyment?

As I wrote the last statement, I had the thought that this is what makes so many of my photos work. It's the discovery of new things that excites me and invariably causes my camera to come out, especially if it's a visual discovery.

So, what excites the child in you? Pay attention to it this weekend. Make it a great one.
