Before the Cruise

This is one of my favorite photographs of my father. We were leaving the port of Tampa and he was completely caught up in the moment. I think some of the best portraits are taken when the subject isn't aware that they are being photographed. You end up capturing their true presence rather than a projected image. It is not often I see my father lost in moments like this. I love this photo because it captured something in my father that he rarely gets to express: genuine childlike enthusiasm and curiosity.
