Son coot beggining to slow down.jpg


The son coot obviously cant keep up, or maybe he just knows that his place is behind his dad

I wish they were a bit better exposed so you could clearly see the adults face but alas I couldn`t manage, oh and sorry to Mitch, I promise one day to get all my photos on one post

I like the mood in #1 showing father and son off on an adventure together.

Well done Mark....the first two are very nice. You can just sense the bond between parent & new born.

In the fourth shot, it isn't that the son cannot keep up. He wants to go into NASCAR and he is practicing drafting. Cute shots.

Nice series. Love the first one. Looks like the front of a Hallmark Fathers Day card!

Thanx as I said to cooper911 I was hoping I might get something of that kind of feeling, they do look to be a good father and son team, ie the father does everything and the son scrounges off him .

Lol, never thought of it like that , maybe your right but it would have to be a water version of NASCAR, looks like he did pretty well as well .
