52 on Friday-Week Nineteen

A blog circle of photographers from all over the world, both amateur and professional alike, sharing their interpretations of a common theme.  At the bottom of each post, click the link for the next photographer until you come full circle, back here to my blog.


As soon as I saw the theme for this week, I knew what I wanted to shot, but I didn't know how I wanted to shoot it.  I wanted to be able to re-create the memories that this camera brings to mind, but it was mother in those memories, holding this camera. I have many of the pictures that were developed from this camera, but few with her in them.  She's been gone for many years now, but I still a few things of hers that remind me of what she's given to me.

Since Mother's Day is coming up this weekend in the States, I thought it fitting to use this week's post to remember my Mom.  
I'd also like to wish all of photog friends, who are moms, a very happy Mother's Day.  Now go take some pictures of you and your kids, so they have something to remember you by.
