This week, I was reviewing images from a recent cruise to feature here on my Travel Tuesday series. I ran across this photo of my wife, (foreground), and my sister and her boyfriend, all enjoying conversation over dinner at sea. It made me smile and I couldn’t help but share the photo with my family and friends on Facebook on Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, Ben Huberman announced the weekly photo challenge and said, “…point your camera at something or someone that puts a smile on your face (or just show a smiling face.)” You can read the entire challenge post here.
Regular readers of this attempt at writing a travel and photography blog seldom find images of my family, as a rule. However, the photo above fit the topic of the challenge so closely that I couldn’t help but relax my usual policy of leaving out the family pics in my travels. Not only is everyone smiling in the photo, but I can’t help but smile myself when I look at it. I don’t even remember the context that brought about all the smiles. It doesn’t matter. The faces tell a story of one of those happy times in life that everyone can relate. In most browsers, you can click on the image to enlarge it for better viewing.
