This is my dad. My first love. He often wears this contented smile when he\'s with his grandkids and I\'ve always wanted to capture it. On this day last summer I was watching them in the hammock, my heart bursting with love, when I noticed the position of the sun coming through the trees. This was the only frame I took. When I looked on my camera display I knew I had something special. That it resonated with so many of you means the world to me. It\'s become a touchstone photo for me - one that reminds me not to strive to create beauty but to receive it.
