I agree with Bob...this is definetly a 'warm-fuzzy'. His smile tugs at the heart & pulls you into his joy! I will always remember this precious child.

Great shot and choice to use B&W. The B&W makes it an impact shot.

Oh goodness...sorry Marvin...didn't mean to hog this! I was told there was an error when I tried to submit my admiring comments so I tried to submit again...guess I went a little overboard!
