Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine

for all time
with endless love

All weekend I have been thinking of my lovely daughter Lady, and her timeless heart. Never to be forgotten. This has always been one of my favorite photographs of her: Young, beautiful and imaginative. I thought this week’s challenge would be a perfect tribute to her. Rest in peace my Lady Pooh.

  3. Absolutely lovely image. The treatment gives it a very bittersweet feel. The yellow associates happy and sunny feelings, yet her look is so intense and serious. The portrait looks “old school.” It makes for an interesting combination. Fine tribute.

    • Thank you Linda. The photograph is old-school. Taken in the 80’s when she did child modeling. She past away last year at age 33. Thanks so much for your warm and spirited comments.
