The Fool's delight

By mrswoolybill
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,

Wow, thanks Barbs, and thanks to everyone who has found their way here - I'm delighted at how well this has been received.
Looks like the little one will be pulling the faces in the future Moira.

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.

Two fantastic expressions and a great composition Moira. Excellent in all respects.

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.
