I was planning to take a picture of Serena and her little friend saying goodbye. Their over exuberant hug brought them crashing to the ground. Serena banged her head on the hard floor and even though she tried to hold it together began to cry. As soon as she was done getting a hug from me, her friend gave her this sweet kiss to feel better. I tried my best to capture it even though I had left the camera on manual and had no time to even check my settings.
Today was a good day on my 365 journey. Today I realized that if I am going to do this for my family I need to worry less about the quality of the photo and more what the photos captures. I caught this sweet moment in a quite horrid photo. But, I decided it was the best photo for our day anyway. Bad photography - yes. Over processed - yes. Winner of the day - yes!!
Here's the original photo. I am really happy that I was able to salvage it as much as I did. At first glance, I thought it was probably destined for the trash can.
