Speedy

Speedy

Perusing some vacation pics from a couple years ago, I came across this shot of Zachary examining a water bug he found and preserved in a two liter soda bottle. Because of the bug’s swift swimming movements, he affectionately named it “Speedy”. I like this shot because it reminds me of the simple pleasures and delights of youthful curiosity and how I use photography to keep that alive in me when life’s demands come calling. August 5, 2012.
Camera specs: Nikon D50, F/5.6, 1/20

  1. Yes, he has a minnow pot as well. The boys fill it with bread and within a hour have two dozen minnows. They let go … and then catch them again 🙂 Good times! — Rob

  2. When I was his age, I toted around a bag full of minnows I fished out of the creek. A water bottle would have been so much easier. You caught my feeling to a tee.
