Little Boy with Flower

Photo taken by contributor Nat, a 70-year-old man who has been interested in photography since he was a child. He has suffered from chronic depression for many years. Usually the loss of a loved one, rejection, or anything that triggers feelings of low self-esteem will lead to a challenging time for him. Lately, he is rediscovering the joy of the act of photography, and waiting for that moment that tells a special story to the casual observer.

About this photo: “I call this ‘Little Boy with Flower.’ It was taken at the Cloisters, NYC, 1960s.”

    Isn’t it a wonderful moment in time and space, captured & preserved expertly? That’s photography at its best, yes?

    Precious. He looks extra small compared to the road/walkway. In that way he blends in at the same time he sticks out. Good job.
