Choosing a favorite 2018 photograph was easy. It is even a flawed photograph (the focus is sharpest on the sunflowers, not the young man). But, the young man's whole body smile just grabs me.
I was at Buttonwood Farm in July for their annual sunflower festival, with funds supporting Make-A-Wish. I was in line to buy six bunches of flowers to support the charity. A young man (himself a Make-A-Wish recipient) was helping to hand out the bunches. I asked him to hold my six bunches,
which overflowed his arms. He rewarded me with a huge smile.
