My inspiration for Father’s Day this year came from all the superhero elements I had seen (scrapbooking kits, movies, pillowcases, etc). I had the general idea of getting a photo of Dylan in his Superman shirt with “Dada, you’re my superhero!” It took a little coaxing to get my now opinionated child to participate. He likes to pick his own shirt and I had to work hard to convince him to wear the Superman one for at least a few minutes. He also likes to choose at times when and where he wants his photo taken. Naturally, my suggestions originally were ignored. I snapped shots regardless hoping to get something and I did by patiently following his lead.
When he finally moved in front of my herb garden (better background and no direct sun) plus blew a kiss and made the best smile – I managed to get not just the one photo I had hope for, but three! I edited each using Ashley’s Nice & Easy and Momaziggy’s Gold Glory actions, cropped and outlined to mimic a comic strip. Then added the text in Marker font below (I see now I made a typo in adding a space between super & hero – oops!) and had it printed at 8×10 for Dylan to give to his father along with a card he made.
After breakfast and gifts, the three of us went to Bond Park to spend some time together. We had fun strolling the paths, watching the boats and playing at the playground. I haven’t even had the chance to look at the photos I took on my DSLR, but this shot taken with my iPhone and edited with Instagram is a favorite:
Like father, like son. 🙂
