I Heart Faces–Photojournalism

e_MG_2946 David, Olivia and Granddad

This week’s theme at I Heart Faces is a little different; here are the guidelines on what they’re looking for:

Our definition of Photojournalism for the sake of this challenge: Using an image (or images) to tell a story.

So, for this week’s challenge we’d like you to choose a photo that is photojournalistic in style. Or (for this week only) you can enter a collage of photos instead. Please make sure that a human face is showing up somewhere in your photo entry and that you use only a maximum of 5 photos in your collage.

I took pictures yesterday of a new great niece in our family. So many of those photos tell a story to me, mostly about the love that everyone has for this tiny new person. But this picture is, to me, special. Not only were we all together to meet this 8 week old princess, but we also were celebrating my father-in-law’s 91st birthday. From one end of the life spectrum to the other, and to me, this picture tells the story of the circle of life.
For more pictures that are worth a thousand words, head on over to I Heart Faces and click some links. And thanks so much for stopping by….
