Another strong look: “Don’t you dare touch my drink!” was the loud and clear message here while eating some “lunch” at KFC in Almere.

How Tough Guys aren’t as Bad as You Think

These two guys are friends since they were about 5 years of age. They are now 13. Noah is the tall one and Liam, my son, is a lot shorter but can still be considered kind of tall. You know they hit puberty and they do grow… a lot. This time they were playing soccer in the schoolyard in front of our house and I asked them if I could take their picture. Yes, sure! Ok act tough!… was my direction… and so they did… act? Thanks guys, you almost had me scared there.

Liam in Incourt – Same place different time

Here’s a photo I took in Belgium on June 26, 2005. Liam is almost 4 years old in this picture. This was shot with the Olympus C-7070 wide angle at 27mm in full frame (24x36mm) terms.

See you Incourt

Aperture: ƒ/4   Camera: C7070WZ   Taken: June 26, 2005   ISO: 80   Shutter speed: 1/400s   

This next shot was taken on July 28, 2014 in the exact same spot in Belgium.

Liam is now almost 13 years of age. I’ve shot this from memory, composition-wise, I should have taken this from a bit lower perspective but due to an injury I wasn’t able to squat down that low :) We both noticed, at the location, that there is now a new sign-pole where he was standing in 2005 so he had to move over a bit to the left. This one was shot with the Ricoh GR at 28mm.
