Story with a Happy Ending

Adrift on the Lake

Adrift on the Lake

I was shooting pukeko chicks at Western Springs, when a little tragedy unfolded. The pictures tell the story, the tears are omitted. I admired the grandmother who managed the situation with great skill.

    The tragedy turned out to be grand photo op for you! I’m glad the grandmother was able to help dry the tears, though.
