    Reported by:

    My father giving drops to my mothers eye after she had an eye operation. She needed drops every 3 hours for a week after the operation. So everywhere they went there was this strange to see ritual. We had a family picnic at our cottage and when I saw this ritual they did in our terrace and I took the shot. The round thing on the right corner is childrens ball wich was there at that moment.

    Dejan, this is a lovely portrait of your parent's love. Yes, it's a portrait of your mother receiving eye drops from your father but this level of dedication and devotion transcends what a simple portrait of one person can be. Great job anticipating their ritual and composing a thoughtful frame and capturing the exact moment of impact. Well done!
