This is number 242 out of 365 pictures I plan on taking this year. It is most definitely the worst of the photos, all 241 that have come before have been better composed and lighted and timed.
This one was taken in my mother’s dim living room from at least six feet away. I was zoomed all the way in and I snapped this picture after barking a loud “HEY!” and getting the two of them to turn their attention away from the TV and in my direction, because getting a good candid shot of my child is damn near impossible.
It’s grainy, it’s blurry, it’s dark and unfocused and fugly – but it’s absolutely one of my favorites, because this right here is a picture of my heart.
