Today’s blog header and the photo I am spotlighting here feature three generations of my family.
On the left, you’ll see a picture of me…I was about four. Next comes my mother, looking all stiff and proper. That was their thing, back then. They probably had to work pretty hard to accomplish that pose. Then comes my daughter—looking relaxed, even dreamy—and her pose tells us something about her generation. Of course, she’s older than the other two subjects, so she’s entering young womanhood, leaving childhood behind.
Photos can tell us a lot about the subjects. But then, there’s always more to the story.
For example, in the photo of me, I was annoyed with the teddy bear, for some reason, and right after the camera snapped, I tossed him into the bushes.
That’s the story behind the photo.
