photo friday: cowboy

I took this photo of Evan during the 2007 Calgary Stampede. We were in the kid's section of the midway rides, and he was soaking in all of the excitement. He was almost 5 years old, so the sounds and lights and motion and energy had overstimulated him pretty strongly. Shortly after this, he hopped onto a dragon rollercoaster, and rode it until he nearly fell over. It was a good day.

The photo was originally shot in colour, but the lights and bright colours were distracting - and the dude walking toward the left had the silliest baby blue shirt on, and that just pulled attention away from Evan's expression. Dump the colour. Convert to black and white. Focus on the story.

What is he looking at? What's he thinking?
