Testing The Wind

Uploaded: January 10, 2007


This is my favorite of the photos taken that day. It was so windy, and Timothy wanted to be outside, but didn't like the wind, so I taught him how to test the wind by wetting his finger and then holding it up. So then he would tell me, "Wind over there" and run in the opposite direction. He didn't like it when he had to run back, though and the wind was in his face again. The catch lights in his eyes are from the setting sun in the distance. We went back to the car shortly after I took this photo. It was just too windy!
