My 17 year old son. We were on a walk, and he wanted to watch the train go by. As I stepped back my thoughts rolled out.

Sometimes I step back and wonder how much courage it takes to have such a positive attitude as he sits in his chair and the world goes on around him. I'm not sure how he does it, and I don't think I could do it. But the world could learn a thing or two from him. I know he has taught me a lot in his 17 1/2 years.

I think what I found compelling about this photo is that I *felt* the connection between photographer and subject even though I didn't know it.

An average of a 6.0?! Heresy! Completely underappreciated.

My favorite and stand alone 10. This was seriously underrated, imo. Congrats on the Posthumous

somewhere between disturbing and beautiful, absurdly nothing and sublimely everything

I'm hanging this in my fantasy art gallery

Very nice. I like the motion blur and the fast-paced, dangerous environment it shows, and although the man in the wheelchair takes up a small amount of the frame you've made it clear that he is the center of this photo's universe and everything else provides support and contrast. One of my favorites so far.
