this is a picture of a friend of mine`s son. the boy has just turned pro as a cyclist and this is part of a photoshoot for some advertising the boy is doing for one of his sponsors.
the cyclist pictured above stole my heart ten years ago when he was the same age as my oldest boy is now. his energy and simple joy at being alive cut through even my thick skin.......
my oldest boy was born not long after i first met him.
we are all the same. me, my son and charlie. we just love life.
charlie is now not so much a boy any longer.
