Great shot, Andrew! Superb composition, with(fortunately) an odd number of paintings and people, in the frame. I know this was a candid shot, but I don’t think you could have posed the ladies any better.I call this one, The Gifts...

This was a gift to me, as I was fortunate enough to have walked into the room and saw this scene before me. I had the Fuji X-E3 and 23mm f/2 on a Black Rapid Sport strap hanging off my right hip. I immediately pulled the camera to my eye and there it was, almost perfectly framed for the field of view. I fired off a shot with the camera set at f/4. I took another after changing the aperture to f/8. The f/4 shot was the one. Then the scene changed and subsequent shots just didn't have the same feel.
The real gift is the fact that 3 generations were together, enjoying the day out of the heat. This was at the Cleveland Museum of Art, in the large room just past the Armor Court.
Always take the shot now, as you are never guaranteed the same scene upon return.
Never take anything for granted.
Always give love, but never expect it in return. The reward for loving one another is not an earthly one, but an eternal one.
Have a great week and I hope this image helps put you in a positive mindset!
