Photographs have an amazing effect on us. An image we haven’t seen in a number of years can instantly take us back to a moment in time we may not even consciously remember.

As I was looking through some older images recently, this shot of my son stopped me in my tracks. It’s hard to believe that this was my teenage son, who is rapidly approaching my height, and passed up his mother earlier this year, only a few years ago. I was following my kids around this playground, trying to get them to pause occasionally, if only long enough for me to snap a frame or two. I’ll probably share a few more from that outing in the future.
