Take a moment...

Last weekend I had a great privilege to be a photographer for a large fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald Houses.  Great event with lots of rich people donating large gobs of money for a worthy cause.  I haven't really shared any shots here because most of them didn't have much of  a story with them.  There were candid shots and some posed portraits.  Not real exciting.  But, during the evening I did a little wandering around and shot some stuff that interested me.  At one point, I was "riding" up the escalator and in front of me was a father and his young daughter in his arms.  She was cuddled up close and they were having what seemed to be a little one on one conversation.  About what, I don't know.  But, it seemed to be a very personal, easy end of the night type of talk.  As they stepped off the escalator, the little girl pointed at the artwork on the wall. Being a good dad, I watched the man walk over to the picture, move up close to the wall hanging and they continued on with a discussion of the lines and lack of color and what the design was trying to convey.  It was a touching moment, and while I couldn't stand there and gawk at it since it was a private moment, I was able to grab a quick shot of the two and their moment as I stepped off the upward treadmill.
