cameron circa 2005
I spent last weekend in Fort Worth, Texas at the Southwestern Photojournalism Conference. I had a wonderful time.
I spent time with old friends and made countless new ones.
On Saturday night, I gave a presentation of some of my work from the past 15 years or so.
One of the images I showed was a shot of my son Cameron that was made at a Tinley Park carnival back in the summer of 2005. Cameron is now 6 inches taller and about 25 pounds lighter but he is still just as cute.
My favorite details of this shot are the skid marks on the pavement, Cameron’s black eye, mismatched shoelaces and his fistful of dollars for the basketball toss game. I think he ended up winning 5 balls that day.
