Monochrome Madness (24) – Young boy

This   is my submission to week 24 to the  Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky. I like the expression caught by the camera, my son had just woken up and was in no mood to be photographed. I think it is captured in this shot. I like that is not a posed shot.
