The scene unfolded before me. All I had to do was wait.
Here are my Father-in-law, Tom, with his daughter, my wife Karen’s sister, Lisa. They’re deep in conversation, catching up and enjoying eachother’s company.
We’re all in the Minneapolis, Minnesota area, visiting my wife’s Aunt Kay, my Mother-in-law’s twin sister who lives here. It’s been such a good visit. Lisa, who lives in Boston, Massachusetts, flew in for the weekend to get in on the visiting.
Today, we spent the afternoon and early evening with Karen & Lisa’s cousin Nancy and her wife Robin’s home. The house was full of family, as two of Robin & Nancy’s grandchildren were over. With these two babies being 10 and 11 months old, it was an afternoon full of fun and laughter.
I kept seeing the light on Tom and Lisa’s faces. I was entranced by the setting and the story it told without any words. I took several pictures with other family folk in the frame, but when I saw this setting with just the two, daughter and father, I grabbed it quick.
When I went to process the images taken today, I instantly saw this in black & white. Cinematic beauty to my eyes.
A nice memory for these two to hold in their hands.
