To every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born and a time to die... Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2

I am holding a vintage photo of my late grandmother, Bessie (on my mother's side) when she was a baby... She lived with our family in her older years until she passed away when she was 78 years old.

I have always wished that I were into photography when my grandmother was living...and that I had shot pictures of her hands...She liked to do water paintings as a hobby when she was young... she loved to plant flowers and she was a nature lover...She taught school before she married...My grandmother was left handed when she wrote letters.

Thank you so much Geoff Plant for the courtesy of the spotlight.

    Thank you all for your comments on this portrait...I really worked on this to get the right angle
    of my hands and lighting for the tiny baby picture of my grandmother to show up clearly...It
    had faded through the years and was among my late mother's keepsakes when she died.
