Behold ...all the trees...when they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves.
St. Luke 21: 29:30

I was happy to find the picture on the left of this diptych amongst some of my mother's old photos that I inherited after she passed away which I have been scanning..I was 2 1/2 years old and sitting on some cut logs with my father..who was 37 years old at the time..I did a self portrait today by a portion of our wood pile on the right .

    This is a great idea for a diptych! Well done (No doubt there is MUCH more diptych material amongst your mother's collection)

    This makes a great dyptich! I am loving seeing your old photos!!! I have a sack of old photos that my brother had that was left after our mom died. I brought them home with me to scan but haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Now you are making me curious about our family photos and what is in them : )
