30 Days::Day 24 and my first photo challenge!

As soon as I took this picture, I realized that I had captured an intimate moment with this amazing person...I realized that I was lucky enough to get to witness this particular view into his world. After visiting Shutter Sisters this week, and reading this challenge (from the amazingly talented Andrea Scher)...I also saw this moment in a new light.
I love that I am totally uncertain as to what he was doing in this photo, and I most certainly don't know what it was that was stewing in his heart and mind. But, what I do see is a moment of raw intimacy, a moment of beauty, a moment of stillness and quiet (which so rarely appears in his energy cycles). I think, in fact, that he was looking closely and dearly at one of his animal figurines...perhaps making conversation, perhaps not. I just know that when I look at this picture and see his eyes softly closed while being fully awake, I see peace.

I keep looking at this picture and wondering what is going on in that wonderful mind of his. The stillness is beautiful.

What a little angel pie. I don't know how you caught this moment on camera ~ I wonder so much what he's thinking. :)

Jessie, you must carry your camera around your neck at all times? When I see something special, by the time I get my camera, the moment is gone! There just isn't enough adjectives to describe all the babes in this family!
