The Human Element- Part 3

Sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time.  That was the case when I made this image of a boy and his father.  I had just finished photographing an early morning surfing competition just south of the Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, California and wanted a few shots of spectators.  What I got was one of my favorite images and an image that tells a story without words.  A father and son moment that can't be scripted. 

I watch for moments like these now.  I know that capturing something like this is mostly luck, but I try to be ready for special things to happen.  Remember, chance favors the prepared mind.  Happy shooting.
