A Child's Stare in the Moment

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Proma Chowdhury

A summer vacation.He suddenly focused on getting me to listen to him; I had spent all afternoon attempting to get his attention and shots of him as he played soccer and got sweaty like a typical child.Here he is in the middle of saying something to me.The only shot captured and moment where his whole attention was on me. A serious and mature look on his face, one not often found on the face of a 5 year old.That whole time I had chased his actions with a result of spontaneously catching his words and stare.

Location: Mount Airy,Maryland
