Believe it or not, I look forward to the Nick shots every year. This crop does not disappoint. The 1st is really superb and there is something in his eyes in the third that makes me feel like he is looking right at me..... a real connection to the viewer.
A truly lovely series.
I think my favorite is the 4th - when his head seems partially haloed by the white square behind - there is something in his expression, I'm not certain what the correct adjective might be ... quizzical? No that's not it, it's almost as though he has seen something, assessed it, and now is ready for whatever may come next.
It's a great photo, in my opinion.
