Shy Mom by kenmo ()
As some of you may know from my prior post my Mom passed away this December 7th. She was born on Christmas Eve and would have been 79.
I took this photo August 29, 2010 while Mom was doing something she seldom did. Take a rest.
When I pointed my DSLR camera with it’s long telephoto lens at her she grinned and said
“Don’t take your Mother’s picture”
then smiled and covered her face.
She thought her hair was untidy and wasn’t wearing the clothes to warrant a photo.
Whenever I pointed the camera she covered her face. This “game” continued for a few minutes, finally I gave up and snapped her photo and informed her I had indeed taken her photo.
She grinned and said “You did not”.
I replied “Yes I did”…
Later that night I displayed the photo on my computer to her. She grinned and asked me to show it to anyone….
Sorry Mom, this is one promise I can not keep…
I love this photo, it kind of captures the innocence and the devilsh side of Mom….
A day or two prior Mom had some blood work.
The needle left a bruise on her arm which you can see in the photo…
I’m sure she doesn’t mind me sharing it with you….
I miss you Mom...
