QUICK SHOT: Portrait of my Dad
by Nehemiah Richardson
(From Steve: This “Quick Shot” will be a new series much like the daily inspiration but with ONE SHOT only. If you have ONE SHOT that you absolutely love, send it to me with a description of the shot, what you used to take the image and why you like it. I may post it as a “Quick Shot”! Send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org)
This is a photo of my dad I captured a few days ago, I snapped it to honor him as he is the only parent I’ve ever truly know. My mother walked out of my life when I was 6-months old leaving my dad to raise me on his own. Through thick and thin, homelessness, living in motels and at times only having beans and rice to eat my Dad always made sure I was able to enjoy my Birthdays and Christmas, enjoy life as child in general. I’ve always wanted to give him the world but that is out of my power, so I want to honor him with this Portrait instead.
Thank you for your consideration.
