Father and Son



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I snapped this picture of a Chinese father with his son in Tiananmen Square in 1990. Judging from the smile on his face, the boy was very happy to be on an outing with his father. And the father was obviously keeping a watchful eye on the enthusiastic boy.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

Cute photo. I like how the dad has his hand hovering over the boy's head, ready to protect him, and yet trying hard to let the boy have his freedom.
