Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.

Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.
— Ansel Adams

In Ansel Adam’s case his photographs were significant to the world, in my case I am defining significant as significant to me!

This photo is one of my 12 for 2016.

 

I love the wonder in the boy’s face.

I love that the chick is gazing right back at the boy.

I love that even though there are lots of people around them this moment of connection is just between the boy and the chick.

I love that you can see that someone older has facilitated this introduction.

I also love that the little light that was visible in this very very dark shed is reflected in the boy’s eyes

and finally I love the boy’s smile, what a smile to meet the world with!

 

And speaking of wondering, I wonder does this photo appeal to you.  I would love to know what you think of it.
