I’ve recently made a few pictures — each for different assignments — in which certain objects appear to be floating. I’d like to think that I’m magical.
Here’s the first such picture:
© 2011 by The York Daily Record/Sunday News. Joey Duffy, 18 months, throws a teddy bear in the air as baby formula is pumped into his stomach via a tube in his family's Springettsbury Township home on Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2011. The Duffy family lost electricity in their Springettsbury Township home during the snowstorm on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2011. Because their youngest son Joey is fed via a feeding tube due to esophogeal stricture, Tom Duffy purchased a generator in Dec. 2010 to power the feeding tube pump in case the house lost power. When their block lost power, the Duffy family rotated the generator to power Joey's feeding tube, the refrigerator and the house's heat in turns.
When my editor and I looked over my takes from this assignment, she paused on this photo.
“I am mesmerized by the floating teddy bear” was her comment.
But we both knew this wasn’t a lead photo.
