Honored to announce that my photograph “Father and Daughter” was selected as one of five winners of the Flickr “Your Best Shot” Photography Competition 2018. With over 7000(!) submissions, it came as quite a surprise when I received the notification email. That this photograph is of my wife and her ailing father in a nursing home in Puerto Rico this past summer, and that it would be the last trip she’d make to see her father as she passed away this past September due to complications from surgery to remove a brain tumor makes this photograph very dear to me.
Thanks to Flickr and the judges for seeing what so many people already knew – she was special. Nuff said.
