A Boy and his Hero
Posted By: cwood, 11-15-2009, 09:21 PM

I was at the aquarium today when the fire alarm went off. There was a little boy outside wearing his own little fire helmet. When this fireman came out he spent a few minutes talking to the boy which made for a nice moment.

This is just a shot overlooking the water from the aquarium

A memorable candid capture that first one.
And nice touch with the colouring.

I generally dislike selective coloring... but it seemed appropriate here. The original color version was NOT a good picture. It has too many distracting elements. So I converted it to B&W but then the little boy's fire helmet was lost in the stroller. Going this route was the only way I could think to provide the emphasis I wanted to the image.
