Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting – Ghost Son

12 Jun

Attempted to snap this photo of my teen son during a Mom don’t take my picture phase. This phase lasted longer than most childhood phases, but in retrospect they were all quite fleeting.

For many years, whenever I aimed a camera at my daughter, her hand whipped up in front of the lens. My son recently pointed out that, had I saved all those shots, we would have a complete chronicle of the palm of her hand as it matured from elementary school to college.

Share dinner with me - okay. But don't take my picture!

    I recently found some perfectly lovely shots of both of them, sans blur AND palm! I’ll be sure to forward. :)
