Little Tom Sawyer by pflaume

Little Tom Sawyer

This boy was an awfully cute sight at the pond this morning. I asked his father's permission for a photo which he gave, but his son looked rather perturbed with me as I snapped away. After a couple of annoyed sideways glances, I decided it was best to leave him in peace. Hopefully, the fish were biting and the morning improved after the papparaza went on her way!
Very cute! Nice capture! Love the lighting!

Very cute- you have to think of it from a child's perspective, why would anyone but his/her parents want a picture of him/her if they're not family?

Oh, he looks so small and dwarfed by everything in this picture! What a neat image, and I hope you sent the father a copy.
September 9th, 2013  
Lovely, Lisa!
September 9th, 2013  
Simply stunning
September 9th, 2013  
What a great shot Lisa, I bet his Dad would love a copy of this.
September 9th, 2013  
@archaeofrog @paulaw Thank you, Katie and Paula. I wish I could give him a copy! Neither of us had anything to write with. I think I need to have little cards made to just had people so that they could contact me for a copy. It doesn't come up that often because I am not yet much of a people photographer, but when it does and I am happy with the photo, it's always nice to share. What do you two do in similar situations?
September 10th, 2013  
I don't really, can't quite bring myself to photograph other peoples children yet because I always worry about it. Different if you can ask permission but I don't quite have the courage to do that either!!
September 10th, 2013  
So sweet! His parents should enlarge and hang it on his wall!
September 10th, 2013  
@pflaume I shy away from people photos, so I've never had the chance, but I did make a set of mini business cards from moo.com awhile ago that I pass out when I meet other photographers (had info about my blog, bit they could contact me through that). I got a set of 100 for $5 during a sale. Here's a link to the site: http://www.moo.com/share/rx2xf8

Aww - how very cute! Looks like a beautiful morning :)
September 11th, 2013  
So sweet - and a very beautiful shot!
I have asked for an e-mail address to share a couple of times but I don't always have a pen with me. If I send a pic, I do it from an e-mail address I don't use often. I don't take may people shots, unless it's street musicians and I don't always want them to have my contact info.
September 11th, 2013  
A little boy in the big wide world. Great negative space.
September 11th, 2013  
This is SO beautiful. I agree with Daniel - love your use of negative space. What sumptuous colours and reflections too. FAV! :-)
September 11th, 2013  
Love it! Beautiful scene and so cute with the little man!
