When you least expect it

It’s so true that we discover some of life’s most extraordinary moments when we least expect it.

I had just walked a public labyrinth located in Victoria, BC and was drawn to a colourful and amazingly well kept church across the street. Camera in hand my intent was simply to get a few shots of the sharp architecture and vibrant colours of the building. No sooner had I crossed the street, a van pulled up and out stepped two figures: a white haired elderly woman and a neatly dressed young man no more than about twelve. What happened next is what I captured through my lens. This to me is the epitome of Life’s Sweet Ordinary.


Notice the boy’s shoes? Someone really cares about him as well.
