Gratuitous Cuteness

We return to our occasional Gratuitous Cuteness series. While poking around Forest Park a few weeks ago I met the Burton family near the fiberglass dinosaurs. The father, William Burton, Jr., is an artist and craftsman. He helped make the dinosaurs. Check out his web site for the things he creates. He, his wife and his three kids were enjoying the park. The children were irresistible subjects. You meet the most interesting people by walking around with a DSLR and saying hello.

TOMORROW: The Thursday Arch Series returns.

Just looking at their joyous and open expressions makes me happy. Such pride in his family and his artistry. Great family with beautiful souls and smiles. People are my favorite photo subjects - and you do it just brilliantly!

I'd say the dinosaurs might be gratuitously cute. The kid is just plain cute. He likes the camera and it likes him right back.
