Two Mothers: 1966

Two Mothers: 1966

My mother and my father's mother on a chilly January day in 1966. Kodachrome slide I took in Calpella, California, where my grandfather raised grapes from 1915 to 1953. View full size.

Striking

As with most of tterrace's photos, there's something about the composition that surprises me, or isn't obvious to me until the second or third time I look at it.

In this case, crop tight on his mom's shoulders and head, and you have what looks like a painting. A very good painting.

It's something to do with the lighting on the left side.

Can't Buy Me Love

tterrace, I've loved your photos over the past few years. This one is very moving. Many thanks for your photo gifts.

What a lovely picture

You can feel the love shining through this photo. It literally brought tears to my eyes. I will be remembering my mother and grandmothers tomorrow, and I'll be thinking of yours, too.
