While taking a stroll with my camera I happened to hear a young family shouting to their sons eagerly, “Smile…SMILE!…” As I walked by I noticed one of the boys had endured just about enough of the heat, walking, cameras and everything else requiring motor functions. His parents shouted, “Oh come on…” and his brother leaned over and gently used each of his forefingers to form a smile on his brother’s face. Brotherly love I suppose you could call it. I just about burst into laughter at the sight of all this, but not before I grabbed a quick shot. And what I love most about this photo is that I didn’t need to tell you all this for you to just “know” what’s happening.
Everybody has had one of those moments when you’re simply done. Done talking, done walking, done thinking…done. But, wouldn’t it be nice if we all had someone who could be kind enough to give us a smile assist every now and then? Ya know, so people don’t think you’re a total grump.
