This is my favorite kind of picture to take of the kids. Their backs turned, a little ways ahead of me, making there own observations. If you look through my pictures over the years, you will see a lot of pictures of my kids walking ahead of me, and often choosing a path.
I love it because I think this is the best way to describe what I believe my job description as a parent is.... to create independent and thoughtful kids, eager to make their own path and mark in life, but not in such a way that they are alone - after all, I am right there with a camera to capture the image and hear what they have to say or ask.
