He Ain't Heavy.... He's My Brother by grammyn

He Ain't Heavy.... He's My Brother

there is something poignant about this image. except for the clothes, this has a vintage feel, rather historical, something i'd expect to see in a book. even the expressions on the children's faces; those eyes surely are expressive. aces on this, girlfriend. aces!

THE STORY for those of you that asked

Long story short is this family had no transportation so I help out with that. This day I was there for that reason and they were playing He jumped on his brother's back. I thought it would make a cute shot so I asked them to come to the door for the better light.I took two shots and just knew it was a great picture of them. Usually they are all laughter and busy but for some reason they freeze when I take their picture. That is what gives it a timeless look because so many vintage photos required the subject to be perfectly still just as these boys are.
