A father-daughter moment – dad browsing with his iPhone and daughter browsing “old school.”
Sometimes a “moment” just happens. This photo was taken in May of 2011 while visiting family. There were a number of other people in the room, visiting, laughing and having a good time. I was down on the floor focusing my photographic effort on the little girl, snapping pictures and didn’t really notice the symmetry between her and her father in the background until I saw it on my computer screen.
This image actually took a good deal of work and digital magic. Beyond converting it to monochrome, there was another person in the shot and a fourth person’s foot that I had to remove to isolate my subjects.

The eyes of this child are hypnotic. It’s hard for me to look away…all the while, wondering what she might be thinking.
This is a father and daughter – part of a family of five I was working with for a family portrait. He was carrying her as we walked to another setting in the outdoors.
