Redemption


My 12-year-old son is a constant source of wonderment and one of my greatest teachers. For my birthday last year I told him the best gift he could give me was for the two of us to spend the day at our favorite beach. I brought along my new camera, just in case I found anything of interest. Well, not only did I find EVERYTHING of interest, I became consumed with taking pictures for the entire afternoon. When the day was done I realized I had completely missed an opportunity to spend some quality one-on-one time with my son - aside from taking photos of him, like this one. When I began working with this shot the first thought that came to mind was: Redemption. So now when Mac comes home from school and says, "Mom, you're STILL on the computer?" (like he did yesterday), I shut 'er down. :)
