2 LEGIT was created from a black archive photo. This photo reference was very nostalgic for me.
I remember watching grown folks pose on the hood of their car or their somebody’s car. Rather that was an uncle’s car or grand daddy’s.
I remember how cool they looked.
I remember them laughing and doing complicated handshakes and pulling each other in close.
I remember they had to wait until the next get together to see their “moment” on the printed film.
I remember Granma saying, “you bet not steal my picture!” as they smoothed the sticky photo album vellum back down.
I remember the love.
I remember how crisp the air felt as I took in a deep breath and released a grin.
I remember how they disappeared one headline at a time….….
