When he was little, the boy-child loved the camera and it loved him right back.
As he’s got older, the relationship’s changed in one fundamental respect. These days, he feels he belongs behind the lens rather than in front. So it takes something quite special — like his grandmother’s desire to have a “nice picture” for Christmas — to persuade him to be photographed.
And with no disrespect to my son’s very real talent as a photographer, I think the camera still loves him.
This post was written for the Daily Post Photo Challenge. This week we’re asked to show something without which the holiday season would be incomplete.
