Photograph of the Year

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.  

Every year City Daily Photo bloggers begin the new year by posting a

The young man is indeed a sunflower among the others. I love it.

What a wonderful choice for your photo of the year. The smile is as bright as those gorgeous sunflowers. I hope your purchase and photo made the young man's day. Happy New Year!
