Another from Scarborough, but a slight change as my son Tom is also in frame. He is Autistic and true to form, he is not watching the glorious sunset behind me, but checking out the changes since his last visit. This not only includes buildings or shop fronts, but also if any lampposts have new bulbs or changed to LED's or small stuff like that. He has a remarkable memory and is able to retain this sort of detail anywhere he goes....and also is a great guide as he remembers all the roads he has been on too!

This photo would suit him, as he hates to be the centre of attention, or look at himself on photos. Although small in the frame, he is quite tall at 6' 5". On Saturday, along with his brother Chris...for once he will be the centre of attention at a presentation for completing a 41 mile charity walk in June....and both managed it in just 13 hours! Smile

A great write up, beautiful shot and full marks to Tom for completing the 41 mile trek in 13hrs (sounds painful)

wonderful image. I think it would benefit from a crop at the bottom, which would make it more dramatic and put your son more into the centre - but that's just my opinion.

A lovely image that brings back memories as I have not been to Scarborough for a few years. But quite rightly this is image is more about your Son so a big congratulations to him and his bro on completing what sounded like a tough walkSmile

Some going that Martin, but I'm surprised you didn't tag along as well!
