Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

IMG_0417

This goes to show you why you should not erase any digital photos, including the mistakes.

The photo challenge theme of the week is: Close.

I accidentally shot this photo of … my husband’s knee and hand on my iTouch. iTouches are so …. touchy.

We were at Citifield watching one of the first Mets games of the season. We were visiting the whole family. Even though they are not in this shot, our WHOLE family: both sets of grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, all came out to see the game.

Even my dad and father-in-law, and my brother-in-law and his sons who are all Yankees fans, all came out to cheer the Mets. Why? We wanted to be together as a family, a rare occasion as we live far away from our NYC family roots.

So, this is an accidental close-up shot of my husband’s jeans on the surface.  But on a deeper level, this is a photo of  a day that showed my family’s togetherness.

And closeness.

About stacylynngittleman

I have been a public relations professional and reporter -- and always thought I would live in the New York Metro area - before my husband took a job in Rochester, New York. Most in Metro New York can't find Rochester on a map,and neither could I before we moved. I am now a columnist and a freelance writer for Rochester's only daily newspaper, the Democrat & Chronicle. I also am passionate about gardening, fitness and most of all, Jewish education and Israel Advocacy. Here's my perspective on Western New York living - the good, the bad, and the snowy.

    It is a fascinating shot because of the angle too… It looks as if he is picking up that huge stadium. ;-)
