I'll try this one on you. Grandson No. 2 in a book shop and a touch fed up. Hornsea Freeport. Had to grab a shot. EOS 7D with 18/125 OS Sigma at about 28mm. ISO 800. 1/100 @ f5.6.

Os on. Hand held.

Ha,ha... I really love this, made me laugh....
Quite old fashioned.. who wants to go to book shop nowadays...? They are all closed! You were lucky to find one and drag your grandson in it. He wants massive computer for good games, ipad, good phones..they are called gadgets these daysGrin,... a book? Boring!Grin..
No, I was kidding. I love bookshops,especially second hands ones, the smell is wonderful. I even specially re-visited the Saffron Wallden one last Saturday. But the truth about 'modern life' is we read less and less, bookshops are struggling...the gadgets are more attractive to kids than books, especially at that age, no doubt he was fed up...That's really a great story telling shot! I noticed that you always take great shots with children. (most of them were yours.)
Alternative crop, not necessary better,just an idea.
BTW, Thank you very much for your helpful critique on the hotel, Paul.

Sweet, funny - and the collar masks his face, protects his private thoughts, prevents the camera from intruding on them.
Just a thought - crop to square, with the diagonal splitting the frame behind him. Mod to follow.
