When we went to Philippe Park for a little photo walk, I had to beg for your cooperation. I know you hate feigning interest when I’m trying to get the shot. But the camera loves you. Lately, I have to look at you a lot, because I’m trying to match the image in my mind’s eye with the image I see through the lens. Most of my stares (when I can’t hide them) are met with: “what?!”. I think I get how it makes you feel. But the reason I stare is that you’re turning into a full-fledged guy, right in front of my eyes. It’s the strangest feeling to know that in my mind, I still see you as a little dude who loves to build with blocks and plays with Matchbox cars. I know you’re in a different place now, and I’m doing my best to keep up with your changes.
