Eyes Of Innocents

Recently I was doing some photography at an indoor youth soccer match. Usually I get up close to the plastic partition to do my work, but this time I was sitting on the top row of the bleachers and shooting the action as I could from where I was sitting.

During a break I was looking around and I noticed this little boy, sitting on his mother’s lap, staring up at me. How could anyone not want to photograph him. I had the perfect lens for this on my DSLR – an 85mm – and it gave me this great image.

Look at those eyes. What is he thinking? What does he see? Is he making memories? As I look back at him I see one thing. I see myself from beyond a half a century ago. And I do so as he sees me - through eyes of innocents… Smile
