Standing still to run

I am inverting the U2 song, 'Running to stand still', for this picture of my son Finnur as he has his first go at flying a kite. He is standing still, but, in odd moments like this when he stops to concentrate and suddenly gives himself over completely to the task at hand, I see him running on ahead.

These are transition moments: swimming on his own across the pool, reading to his younger brother, explaining to his grandparents that he has become an 'expert' at kite flying.
