Hobbes and trains - from Thomas to Lionel, he loves them all! This particular train was given to me by my parents when I was actually pretty close to Hobbes' age, around four-five. Hobbes loves it and when he comes I take it down from its shelf in my study and we "drive" it on some track on a rug. I took quite a few shots of his enjoyment (I am a grandfather, after all), but really liked this image. His intense concentration and posture made it work. The colors worked, too; the reds and blues are nicely balanced. I really miss my train pal!
