The lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth and even for evermore..
Psalms 121: 8
My mother who passed away, October 26, 2011 would be 103 years old today if she were still living...I shot this portrait of her holding 2 of her paintings in October of 1997... I used my FE2 Nikon Film camera with flood lights, tripod and a background which I set up in my folk's garage. I remember clearing out their garage to get everything organized so that I would have room to set up the equipment..
This was one of mother's favorite pictures of herself in her older years that she framed on her wall at the home place and on her dresser at the apartment where she moved to before she went to the rest home..
Come from hobbies
That gave pleasures...
We keep them strong
Preserved in pictures..
To replay their song..
The melody lingers
Alive in our heart,
Thru' a mother's fingers
Touched by her art...
Poetry by me, AJP
