Catchlights

This beautiful little face belongs to my 4 year old grandson, Nicholas.

I took this photograph last Sunday when he was in my garden playing with his little cousin, Charlie.  I think it's a very sweet  photograph of Nicholas and I'm really happy with it.  But what really floats my boat about this photo are the catchlights in those beautiful  deep blue eyes.  The colours reflected therein - blue and white and a speck of orange - are tiny images of his cousin, Charlie, his Aunty Caroline and me, his Nanny, with camera up to my eye.

Catchlights, I love 'em, especially in this little fellow's eyes and they are my Simple Pleasure this week. 

I'm joining  Dayle for her weekly Simple Pleasures Party.

I didn't know that was what it was called. I love your capture. No wonder it's your simple pleasure.

Such a handsome little face, full of wonder. You captured not only the wonder but the reflections in his eyes. Great shot.
