Terrified. by bobfoto

Terrified.

It wasn't my intent but this little lad was terrified of me. Lucky for me that some of the older kids thought it was pretty funny and they tried to get the little tacker to stand still for a photo.

It didn't work and as soon as the lens was raised, the tears came.

:(

Poor little guy.

:(

Photo taken 13 July 2013 at Ower's Corner.
You sure it wasn't the beard?

@jtrudell - you may be onto something...

Ditto. Most little 'uns are scared of Santa when they seem him.

Ah! Traumatised child.
February 24th, 2014

I can get the same reaction at times, lol. They're pretty cute kids though.

Poor baby! A fabulous shot but at what price?
February 25th, 2014  
Fun to see the other kid who clearly sees the photo op as a fun thing and how the little one is sort of hiding behind. Very cute shot conveying the two emotions/reactions.

Who wouldn't be terrified of the HWG?

Perhaps he thought it was a weird sort of gun! Adorable picture and good older brother!

Awww. It looks like he is wearing a head dress of green leaves.

Oh, and my brother was always scared when it came to took photos of us too (when we were little-ones i mean.. ;) )! :D
February 26th, 2014  
@bobfoto I'm sure he will adjust. That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger! ;~}

@grammyn - says the lady who is recovering from some serious trauma herself. How are you feeling these days?

@agentzuckerguss - Do you have some cool family photos of a terrified brother?
February 26th, 2014  
@bobfoto I guess that is partly how I know that! I am out of the cast and hale o and learning to use muscles that were unused for months. Still working with some vision problems that I hope will rectify themselves as well. Trying to learn patience and sometmes failing miserably. Thanks for asking Jason! I am still touched by the people that care!
February 26th, 2014  
@grammyn - it sounds like the physiotherapy is coming along then, good to hear!
February 27th, 2014
