L'il Pollock

Photobucket
Photo Friday's current and far-reaching theme of art has me digging, not too far back, into the vault. Rather than displaying an sublimely abstract or bokeh-heavy piece of photography, the theme reminds me more of this literal take on the subject – a tidy vignette of a moment I caught last spring while Kerry and I were at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Resting my tired feet on a bench in a hall of gigantic Jackson Pollock works, I watched this kid – huge Pollock fan, it appeared – incessantly urge his parent to take this rigid pose beside this piece. Flash off, I snuck this snapshot off without the camera-toting guardian noticing.

Aw, that's pretty sweet. I like seeing a young art fan.

What a great capture. I love an image that tells a story -- this is just perfection!

Amazing work! This shot is an outstanding composition with such a great subject, it takes a skilled eye to notice an opportunity like this.
