A Slice of Life - My Wild Boy, On the Trail Part 3 {San Diego Documentary Photographer}

December 06, 2016  •  1 Comment
'Tis my wild boy
Sunlight gleams in his smiles
Radiant blonde hair winking in the sun
Sturdy legs running ceaselessly 
With a flash and a wink
My heart sings

'Tis my wild boy
Ever smiling in joy
Crooked grin 
My heart a captured prisoner forevermore
Chubby hands are forever sticky
Painting jam pictures
My heart sings

'Tis my wild boy
A wonder of delight
Cuddles so happily with me
Mud puddle jumping has never been so fun
My heart sings

 

Hi again! It's been a little longer than I had planned since the last installment but this little guy {featured here in this post} just had his appendix out this past month and that delayed things a bit. This blog post was planned to be posted right around that same time. He is doing wonderful now and we are back with this muddy part 3 installment of a slice of life on the trail from earlier this year with him. 

At the beginning of this year, in Spring,  we spent some time on one of our favorite trails in Balboa Park which includes the Juniper staircase. After extra rain here in San Diego we had some good mud and mud puddles. As we approached he squealed with delight, as only a 3 year old boy can{at the time} at the sight of the huge puddle surrounded by lush greenery. 

He jumped. Got wild. Dirty. I documented his pure joy. This moment of boyhood that fleeted past all too quickly. My heart sang. This is my wild boy. I hope you enjoy. 

Love & Blessings, Anna

This is My Wild Boy, the third and final installment of my Slice of Life series. I met up with my family on the trail at Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve in San Diego California. I had a vision in mind, but as we began our hike, my vision went out the window. We were greeted by a burst of color: a field of bright yellow mustard flowers. My sons quickly ran off into the field, making their own adventure. They ran and played, not a care in the world. They were happy just being together and feeling free to explore. It was so beautiful to see them run free and unencumbered by all of the stresses that we deal with on a daily basis as adults. I started thinking about how powerful it is to feel joy in life's simple moments. How easy it can be to forget that we are more than our troubles and that sometimes all we need is to let loose and be free in our most innocent state; to allow ourselves to be wild for a moment.
