From my wedding archives of my friend Elizabeth, this is her two granddaughters, Faith and Grace. To all mothers, grandmothers and greats, hope you have a GREAT day! Today I have plans to have lunch with my mother and dad. Then Dave and I will probably come home and veg, go to church and enjoy the rest of the day!
Make this day a great one!

Howdy Linda

A nice tribute for Mothers Day. I recharged my flat cellphone, & called my mom in Australia, a few hours ago. Good tonal range & sharpness. Hope your daughter / son remember you!

Hello Linda,
Beautiful shot in B&W. Love the looks on the happy faces.
Gives a very warm and pleasant feeling.
Happy Mother's Day!

Best regards,

This evening my husband´s mother....

It´s a glorious day 35C in the backyard.


Hi Linda,

First of all, a very happy mother's day to you!:D

What a wonderful photo of these two little granddaughters! The lighting almost makes it look a tad old fashioned. I love the poses of the little girls and the grandmother with arms to hug all the enter!! It's just precious. I love the little one in the front with her little white patent leather shoes and socks!!

Enjoy your day! Lisa

Hi Linda,

Beautiful image and the perfect day for it. The capture was not only of the light and the people, but you can just feel the love and emotion pouring out of it.
Happy Mother's Day to you too!! (as well as anyone else reading this)
TFS, great stuff.

Lovely feelings here.

Hi Linda,

Excellent in imaging this concept...
Well done.


Hi Linda,
It's particular the light which I like in the posting! Despite the blond :-) hair of grandma, there is a clear contrast between the hhair and bright area. Adoring poses too. Great B&W posting my dear. Greatings from Silke too while we have a great time in Bournemouth with gorgeous weather!

What a beautiful touching moment captured here. A beautiful tribute to mothers. Happy Mothers Day to you!! TFs

hi linda, a happy mom's day to you! from everything i have seen from this site you are a loving and caring mom!

Lol, thats all we did...veg. Nicely converted Linda and I feel possibly better in BW than colour. Good control of the light and nice tones and textures. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Dry Stone Wall’

What a beautiful capture.
An excellent gift for Mother's Day.

Hello Linda,
