Cold boy


This young lad is pictured just off the main beach at Bournemouth, UK. He was running around after a dip in the sea. His mother seemed to be getting impatient with him. We gave a knowing smile to her and continued to eat our fish & chips. When I turned to look up again I saw the boy standing in this beautiful shaft of light from the setting sun and I knew I had to get the shot. I gestured to his mother if it was ok to take the shot and she replied with a thumbs up. I only managed to squeeze this frame before the boy went off running again, he only looked up for a tiny second. Its one of those moments that I am happy that I had a camera with me. It reminds me of certain war imagery I have come accross in the past, probably mostly due to his nationality, but also the way he seems alone and exposed?...
