My Inheritance

Since I was a kid, adults always compared my appearance to my parents, especially my dad’s. Everyone told me that I looked exactly like him, earning me the nickname “Binky” as his nickname is “Bing.” One family friend called me Rodelia, remarking how much I looked like my father Rodel.

My dad loves being told that we look alike, and would often encourage me to say that we did. In reflecting on the concept of hereditary, I remembered all the things I heard growing up about what I inherited. This collection of photos features those quotes I heard from the adults in my life as I grew up.
