This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge asks us to provide a photo of something new.

Photos of a baby are the prototypical answer to any request for a representation of “new.” My family has been fortunate enough to have several children born recently and not surprisingly I have been taking more than a few pictures of them. I initially resisted using a photo of a baby for this challenge for fear of being trite. However, in thinking about a photo of mine that demonstrates “Possibility. Opportunity. Potential.” (as mentioned in the challenge), I realized that one of my pictures did that in a way that wasn’t just the typical cute baby photo. This photo is of my recently passed father-in-law and one of his great-grandchildren. As my father-in-law holds his great-grandchild’s hand and looks intently at his happy face, I see him looking into the past and future. His loving 91-year-old eyes and small smile show that he is content both with his life and with the promise of the child and of potential he embodies.
