    Danger! Sharks in action!! On a hot summer day we went for a short trip to a lake nearby. With only us and our son going, we took the giant shark for him to play with. It proves that you should always have your camera ready, great moments come usually unexpected ;) At the same time, this photo wouldn't have been taken, if I wasn't focused on working on a personal project on BOYHOOD. That pushes me and reminds me to keep looking into my son's life, capturing big and little moments, all the time.

    This moment is full of whimsy and humor, Agnieszka! I love the magic of the shark floating "in the sky" and the pure joy that encapsulates this young boy's joy. It makes me smile more and more as I look at it. Beautifully captured!
