I stood mesmerized by this scene, my camera functioning in auto pilot, as I quietly absorbed the Joy of the moment. I love to see delight in a childs face. I loved seeing the warmth being shared by this officer.
Wonderful image Cathy. You ca really feel the emotion.
Hello. the photo really tells a story..
How very cool. I’m actually surprised police would take the time to do that nowadays. Gives me the warm fuzzies! 🙂
Oh my God, I love this on SO many levels Cathy! Absolutely wonderful composition, and your timing is PERFECT! Great processing, too, to really bring this to life in a nostalgic way.

This is truly, a heartwarming, Norman Rockwell-esque, image. The moment you’ve captured Cathy, can only make the viewer smile. Pure, freeze-frame goodness.
