I got a little help with today’s photo.
I won’t call it stealing, or cheating. I’d waited all day for sunshine, and when it came, I was inside. I drove through angry storms from Mooresville to Charlotte, through flooded streets and below thunder-crackling skies.
I picked Elise and her friend up from the mall.
The sun shone through and my phone battery died. I told her about the challenge, and that I needed a shot of sunshine if she could manage one. She’s a creative photog herself, so I knew I was in good hands. She took Elise’s senior photos, in fact.
“It doesn’t count to take a picture of your face and call it ‘sunshine,'” Elise said.
Her friend leaned back and got this one. It’s sunshine through heating coils on my back window that haven’t worked since I got the car. It gives the sky grill marks, doesn’t it?
