Taking the kids to Target
[ + zoom ]
I passed by this family earlier today while driving to lunch. They were crossing a four lane road and traffic was completely stopped to allow their passage.
A combination of timing and bad angles prevented a snapshot at the time, but the image burned into memory. Though concerned for their safety, the small event was ultimately filed under "things to smile about."
And this evening as I left a parking lot, I saw them again.
No excuses this time. I stopped the car and made with the camera.
Current music: Annie Lennox "Many Rivers to Cross"

NOw that is a great moment. I wonder if they were grabbing dinner at Target. Wah, wah - it was bad, I know!

That is a great shot. Happy and sad at the same time, but definitely something alive in an otherwise grey and commercial landscape.
I really like it.

I instantly think of the Target commercials, birds bobbing their heads to the music...."hello HELLO! You say goodbye, I say hello...hello HELLO!!!..." and so on and so forth.
