The Gaze, by Sandra Frimpong

This is Joshua, My son. In this picture he is 5. We were sitting by a beach restaurant waiting for our lunch. As always he is smart, passionate and very serious looking for a five year old? He is a very special and gifted young man with a mind more matured than his age. He dislikes it when I take a picture of him so I always try to get him when he is not paying attention. I must say this is one of my favorite pictures of him. His expression is much focused, I was wondering at that moment what he was thinking about, and I bet you are also thinking of the same thing. But I so adore him and especially in this picture.
