This image is one of my favorites of my mother who passed away after a two year battle with breast cancer. When I took this photo she and I were sitting on her back porch talking and I was playing with my camera. I decided to take a quick shot of her by aiming the lens over my shoulder without looking and this is the image I got. I love the framing, the focus and the fact that it was perfectly composed. All i've done to this images is make it a monochrome. Tells me that this image was meant to be. Miss & love you mom :)

    Yes, I think it was meant to be. Some things we just can't explain away...and that makes them all the more rich and resonant. What a beautiful portrait.

    This is a wonderful image. It breaks the rules for how we are told to compose an image. We are told to never have someone looking off the image, but into it. This image would be weakened if that rule were followed. Beautiful work.

    There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.
