Through Grandma’s Eyes: The Quarterback

“The best substitute for experience is being sixteen.”

-Raymond Duncan-

journal entry:

Oh, how I love Zane.  He is a mellow and kind boy.  I loved his braces.  They are gone now. They represented a funny place in the life of a boy . . . where everything is “in-between”.  Everything.  With a telephoto lens, from high in the stands, I was able to watch Zane’s football game like a spy.  Photographs from far away are often more rewarding than photographs close-up.  One can grab natural expressions and gestures from a distance that are in hiding close-up.   Keepsake photographs are those which surprise a moment telling a story  and save the moment like a treasure.  Young, determined . . . looking down the road . . . wondering what is ahead.  Healthy, handsome and good.  It is all there. Grandsons.

“You have to play this game

like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four.”
