• Time magazine wants to know if the photo above by Alfred Eisenstaedt is the happiest photo ever made. I’m not sure, but I know I love it. Here’s the backstory:
“It was early in the morning,” Eisenstaedt himself recalled of the fall day in 1950 when he took the photo. On assignment for LIFE, covering the University of Michigan’s nationally famous marching band, he spotted the school’s drum major practicing his craft. Then, Eisenstaedt said, “I saw a little boy running after him, and all the faculty children on the playing field ran after the boy. And I ran after them. This is a completely spontaneous, unstaged picture.”
• The National Adoption Center is one of the “Big 6” charities that we support. LOVE the work they do finding homes for kids who are tough to find homes for. This week, I came across another valuable adoption resource with lots of great information.
