A final upload from the ceilidh. This is Simon, the Hexham Morris Men's Fool so a familiar face in the North East. He has come to fatherhood rather later in life than most men and he's loving it.
Thanks for looking,
Moira

The expression on the child's face is priceless, Moira Grin. I think he'll be an expert gurner in years to come Grin Carol

Its disturbingly freaky like something from over the cuckoos nest.

Not a crit , the image held attention for a long while , just I dont like the juxtaposition at all.

Many thanks Johanna, that was a lovely surprise!
Dave, interesting comment. The value of photography for me is that it can freeze reality and still leave questions.
