National Geographic Your Shot

I Stopped Saying No | Photograph by Johanna Birch (@johannabirchphotography)
.
“I say ‘No’ too often,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Johanna Birch. “We were all set for a photoshoot at the historic Kenwood House in Hampstead, London. We were ready to start shooting and he asked to take his shoes off — OK. Then socks. Then he wanted to take his shirt off — OK. Sigh. Then he asked if he could put a toe in the mud. We digressed. What you can’t see are all the posh Londoners enjoying a picnic at a 17th Century estate behind him. It was so worth it.”

“Fantastic Johanna. I love it. I agree with Your Shot photographer Perry Svensson who commented, ‘That’s a lovely shot. You can really see how he is oblivious to everything else and is just concentrating on the mud.’ Your son looks like he is having so much fun. I love the trail of mud coming off his feet. I can feel his happiness, his joy, his amusement. Thank you for saying ‘Yes.’” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

In Norway grown men do the same thing, and it’s done us stinking wealthy by oil (...it’s a dirty business, but somebody must do it) 🤫✨
