Sometimes great pictures just happen. Cam smiled, I raised the camera and shot. No playing with lighting, no coaxing a smile, no editing, no post production... nothing. Just the sweet smile of a creative, kind, courageous boy. A camping face.
This was the second-to-last day of Philmont. Cam had made some friends who really understood him. He had been able to roam around to his heart's content, and he had done some hard things (a couple of longish (for him) hikes). He has every reason to look content. It was a good, good camp.
