Wow, what a surprise! This was taken the same day at the Zoo as the Zebra shot. I was taking a picture of a bird, looked up and saw a grandmother with her grandson. It was an emotional reaction to their amazing faces together that caused me to turn and take their picture. Maybe it was my memory of myself with my grandfather at the Zoo when I was a child that inspired me to react to this moment. I wish I could find them and give them this picture. I am a new grandfather and can now understand from both sides, parent and child, what pleasure this picture might give them.
