I enjoyed so many of the submissions for the 2017 Favorite Photo Challenge! I decided to look through my photos on my iPhone to see if I had captured anything worth considering as a favorite. I found three.
I changed them to b/w or sepia, because I am having these printed for my family album. Again, these were taken with my iPhone so not the crispest shots; however, each caught a moment that couldn’t be posed or recreated.
“Not My Son“~My grandboy rests so comfortably in his mother’s arms, because she is his nurturer and protector at all times. The lies about Black men and women in America will never be rooted in his mind or soul. We will make sure of that.
I love all the natural lines in this photo. Her cheekbones are amazing! 😍
This peculiar man is my Daddy! He has had several strokes and seizures, which has caused him to suffer from dementia. I took him to get a new pair of glasses and he said, “Rhon-Rhon take Daddy’s picture and send it to your sister. I think I like these.”
“Jump Up and Over” Mar and Rem got married! Yay!! #HappyLeighEverAfter
This shot is EVERYTHING!! And I had one time to get that genuine expression. So glad I did 👰🏽
“Right in the kisser“~ My newest grandboy can’t defend himself from Grandad’s kisses ❤️
This one was posed (sorta 🤷🏽♀️) Levi was asleep. He kept stretching and throwing his hand back at CW’s face. Everytime CW would kiss it, the baby would snatch his hands back like “stop Granddad!” Lol
“Groovy Son Come Home” ~ Our oldest son is a musician and DJ. He lives in another state. We have not seen him in 5 years. We understood the struggle that comes with being an indie artist, but boy we missed seeing him face to face. Hugging him. Kissing his face. Twisting his hair lol. We’re so proud that the music is finally paying all his bills. Now he’s renting a house with solid roommates, has a new car (still can’t picture him in a Camry, but hey it’s a sensible purchase), and he bought his own plane ticket! And we get to keep him until the new year!!!!
Thanks for taking the time to look at my 2017 Favorite iPhone photos. I’m feeling really nostalgic right now.
