Sisters

This is the only one of the 220+ greeting cards in my collection that is not nature-themed. This is my mother and her sister, and is one of my favorite photos....I had gone to Georgia to bring my mother to visit us for a few weeks, and we stopped by to see her sister in a nursing home. When I saw this, I quietly got a shot. They were 86 and 89 at the time.

I love this. It's very loving. Sometimes when my mother (86 yrs) is sitting quietly, I take pictures of her hands. Even with wrinkles, she has beautiful hands and nails (better than mine. LOL) I want pictures of her hands as something to hold onto, I guess.

I have to ask... What is the "Oh hello" picture of at the top right of your blog? The creature with the long neck? It's so cute!

Mary said...

Wonderful photo! I have 2 sisters, so I feel the emotion of that shot.

A true photographer would see this precious moment and capture it quietly - as you did. Beautiful.

What a moving tribute to your mother and aunt. I'm sure you will treasure it for years to come.

This image brought tears to my eyes - reminded me of my granpa and his brothers.

Oh Helen!
That is truly one of the most beautiful photos I've seen. You have a way with emotion whether it be from nature or from the human heart. Lovely, just lovely...
