The Escape Artist

This little one escaped when his mother was trying to get him and his sisters into the car, and ignored her calling out to him. She finally came over to get him and he started running right toward me. In fact, I have a whole series where she finally nabs him just as he starts climbing the hill to where I was taking shots of the footpath and skyline. In truth, I was waiting for something interesting to come down the path, so I was giddy when this all transpired, and I was amused by the whole scene but tried to be sympathetic and not smile or laugh when the mother crossed back over to the car. The thought running through my head was "only too familiar" and if we're being totally honest here "glad to be the one taking photos".
