Community Photo Challenge
AOL Community Challenge-LOVE
With Valentine's day upon us this month, our next challenge was suggested by Betty.
Of course, this can be of anything that represents love. There are many forms of love, so this should be an easy challenge.
Love is all around us......so find it, capture it, or just use a photo from the past, that says it!
I took this picture 7 years ago so it is not new for sure but it shows love. My daughter in law with my new granddaughter. When I worked in the nursery at the hospital we watched to see what type of eye contact parents made with their new baby. It would give us a hint if there was a bonding issue. This is the kind of eye contact we all loved to see. It is not the best technical shot but I do like it.
And just because her birthday is Valentines day, here is my grandaughter now.
This is my dad. I took this shot on a grey, drizzly July afternoon in Montreal. I had taken him to a couple of cemeteries so he could show me where various members of our family were buried. True to form, I toted my camera along and tried to remember the experience through my lens. Barely two months after this was taken, we lost him, leaving me with a stack of disconnected pixels on a hard drive and more questions than answers. I often look at my pictures from this day and wonder whether or not he knew, or sensed, that his life was drawing to a close. They somewhat haunt me, but I still feel compelled to take the occasional look. Today would have been his and my mom's 56th wedding anniversary. Days like this make me wonder what might have been if the universe zigged and did not zag, and remind me why we should be thankful for having had whatever time we were given. #Montreal #Arthur #Levy #zl #family #everything
