I enjoy taking photos and I do it just for the pleasure of it. I take pictures of things I see around the house, like a lizard in the garden, or an interesting cloud formation, or a pretty flower. I especially like taking pictures at family events and getting unposed pictures of people.
Last weekend we went to the 99th birthday party for the mother of one of my best friends. I have known this woman for over 60 years! She was like a second mother to me during my teenage years. I took several pictures of her and was delighted, when I got home and reviewed my pictures, to find one that I just loved. It just caught a great smile and a twinkle of the eye that was very special and quite natural. I was so pleased when I sent it along to my friend and she liked it so much that she forwarded it on to a "multitude of people".
Sometimes you just get lucky! So glad I did as this lady is very special to me.
