Quiet Contemplation

I often catch my oldest son Matthew in these kinds of pictures; standing (or sitting) and gazing off into the distance, looking deep in thought, contemplating something. I have many pictures of him like this and they are some of my favorite shots of him.

Sometimes he is just watching other activity or something a little ways off, but he looks so peaceful, content, like he is contemplating the meaning of life and will have the answer soon.
