I admit it, when it comes to family it does not take much to fire up my inner cynic. When I first saw this week’s photo challenge topic, said inner cynic came roaring to the surface with these words: “Oh, please. Isn’t that rather cliché, right after ThanksGiving?”
Sigh. But then I clicked over to the comments to see what people were posting, and the first two photos just melted my heart. Take a look here at Brandon’s photo – there is something about those faces that just makes me sense a real connection. And Frizztext always has a photo that inspires – my inner cynic just can’t stand up in the presence of this photo. Wow. And this one here just made me smile.
So, with inner cynic safely tucked away again, I went to my photo archives and came up with this. I took this photo maybe 3 years ago, but I have always loved it. Consider it a metaphor if you like. I will leave the interpretation to you. 🙂
