Not to allow a mountainous obstacle to get in the way of playing with the bigger kids, a toddler will use determination and perseverance to overcome anything in his way. Children look to us as an example of how to act and what to be when they grow up. They see us as courageous and strong, responsible and often times indestructible. Having the opportunity to watch children play, we see there are times when some of these traits can be stronger in them.
I brought my camera with me on this morning with a different plan, but life has it’s way of showing you something far more meaningful and beautiful. A symbolic microcosm of life’s peaks and valleys, inspiring in the simplest and purest of ways and emotionally sweet. I’m thankful for the moment we were given. The feeling of hard-fought triumph and the importance of never giving up, no matter the odds.
Shot in San Diego near the Crystal Pier in Pacific Beach, California. The song is “Anchor (Instrumental)” by indie folk singer Mindy Gledhill. Special thanks to the kids! Shot with a hacked Panasonic GH2 (Aquamotion V2) and Sigma 50mm 1.4 prime.
