The Photo of the Year

Prompt for Dec. 25: Photo - a present to yourself. Sift through all the photos of you from the past year. Choose one that best captures you; either who you are, or who you strive to be. Find the shot of you that is worth a thousand words. Share the image, who shot it, where, and what it best reveals about you. (Author: the Shutter Sisters)

Another challenge. I looked hard to find a photo of me in a red dress dancing at Carolyn's wedding. The freedom of a red dress that drapes and flows on the dance floor when the music strikes the right chord is a moment when I am exactly who I am.

Lacking that  image, here's a more sedate, albeit happy me enjoying the shared celebration of a Thanksgiving meal with my Dad. I try my best to do well by him, to honor him with love and respect. He'll always be my one and only Dad. This, is also "me".

  1. Lovely 'you' photo...

    Barbara Kingsolver said, in her book Animal Dreams 'What I want is so simple I almost can't say it: elementary kindness'

    That is my image for the new year, to give more of it...

    This photo says 'kind' to me
