Never Stop Exploring | Photograph by Katie G.
“My son recently had his 4th birthday, and we gave him a telescope as one of his gifts,” writes #YourShotPhotographer
Katie G. “Our dear son is on the autism spectrum, and we try to find ways to spark his curiosity and learning about the world around him. I particularly enjoy this shot and will treasure it for years to come because of the subtle smirk on his face as he peers in to the telescope. We hope he never stops exploring the world around him.”
“Your photo makes me want to buy a telescope for my niece and nephew, so I can see them have a smile like the one your son has in this photo. I love your caption; you really make me care. I feel your son’s excitement — and like you, I hope my niece and nephew 'never stop exploring the world around [them].'” — @natgeoyourshot
