Life: The Riverbank

I took this in early March just after the schools were ordered to close.

During a walk around my neighbourhood one afternoon I saw grandson and grandmother out with a kite. It wasn’t windy but that didn’t seem to matter to them. Grandson wanted to try his hand at flying and grandmother was happy to spend time with him while she still can. The hidden blessing of no school, no game consoles, no smartphones, and parents at work. All it takes is a simple kite and an afternoon outdoors. These moments are precious.

I’ve been out and looked for these two again and again but haven’t seen them since the day I took this.

Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.
