This is a candid moment between my son and my grandson. The great thing about having a camera at ALL times is that eventually, people quit paying any attention to you :) I did use a texture layer to obscure some distracting elements in the background.

You said it well about the camera. However my wife, does daycare ( about 2 and under) and every time I bring the camera out they all run to get in the picture! They are such fun,sorry I can't put them on here.

**THIS IS PRICELESS, your grandson's smile and fascination at daddys great "bubble machine" is wonderous!
These only become more and more valuable as time passes!:)
