Such a beautiful moment you have captured in this photograph, Mark. It’s a lovely expression.
Thank you so much Uday. It was a very touching moment, I’m glad to have been in the right spot.
Goes right to the heart. ❤ Well done, Mark. Excellent light, mood, looks great in B&W.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Hi Dina. You just made my weekend with your wonderful comment. It was a very touching moment between the two. Have a great weekend.
I have been waiting long for this one, and it was worth it 🙂 I guess they are strangers to you, and were oblivious to your taking photos?
I know I’m so very slow to post, one day that will change I hope. However, it’s nice to get your comments when I finally do 🙂 They are strangers and were not aware of me and in this case I think that really makes the image otherwise I could not have captured the mother’s spirit and tenderness this way. Have a great night Paula
It’s a wonderful shot: the patterns, the vintage feel and ultimately the intimate moment you captured. I think it is perfect!
A wonderful observation and description, thank you very much 🙂
great..as usual..well named
Thank you very much guys :).
Very nice, Mark!

Thank you very much :).
Beautiful capture Mark. The B&W combined with the mother’s hair for some reason makes me think of a shot taken in the 50s – very nostalgic. And I love that you can’t see the little boy’s face! Spot-on with your composition.
Thank you so much. I believe she was connected to a movie that debuted at the TIFF festival thus the nostalgic clothing. Her clothing combined with this genuine moment really caught my eye.
loved the emotion you have captured 🙂
Hope you are doing well Joshi? Thanks for observation it’s always nice to have you around. Cheers
Thank you very much Carissa.
Hi Mark– Has an old-fashioned feel and warmth. Love the clarity, varied patterns and composition.
Thank you so much Jane. This was taken during the TIFF festival and I think she may have been a cast member for a movie premier so her vintage clothing was intentional however the moment captured was very genuine and touching. I’m glad it all came together to make for a great moment. Thanks as always for stopping by.
You have captured beautiful moment. A lovely photograph.
Thank you Otto :).
Fantastic capture of human interaction.
Really glad you like this one. Many times I’ll wonder around for a while and not come away with an image that I really like but this one happened fast. It was one of my first shots of the day! Have a great day – speak to you soon.
heartfelt emotions beautifully captures, wow !!
Thank you so much Henry! Life is hectic so I thank you for taking s moment out to comment. Have a great day
Arms full of love in this great shot Mark!
I could really feel the love for this child, i still remember the feeling. I was not that close at first but among a crowd they really grabbed my attention so i managed to get close. Thank you for all the wonderful comments today, its a great start to the weekend.
Splendid. So much love, so pure, not a moment before or after, captured bang on, in it’s true human spirit of compassion and belonging. Kudos Mark, this is brilliant!!
You often see moments like this in the street but there was something different about this mother’s embrace, I could see it as I approached. As you mention, very pure, true love. I’m glad you picked up on this, I can still feel it every time I come back to this photo. Have a good night.
An amazing pic! Unconditional love is the perfect title!
Thank you so much! The title came to me relatively fast (sometimes it doesn’t) but in this case it just seems to fit perfectly. Thank you for having a look at some of my other work too.
Yes, you are so right Mark. The title fits perfectly.
How can I not look at your other posts? You have an amazing gift! Your people shots grab the entire ambiance of the environment. They capture all emotion that cannot be put into words!
Your kindness is very motivating indeed! Btw, I’ve looked around at your Living Green newsflash and I love it. I’m very much into living a healthy lifestyle, some of the information is fantastic.
Oh my, is it possible to blush at the age of 57? TY for you kind words! Yes, I am a strong advocate of living and eating healthy. Great minds think alike, right! 🙂
Totally stunning! This could be from another time and place almost makes me think of an image from the ’30’s.
It was taken during the Toronto International film festival last year and the mother although in costume for the movie this was a genuine moment between what I suspect is mother and son.
