Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers everywhere and especially to my Mom in Atlanta. Here's my favorite picture of her, circa 1970. She will be celebrating her 89th birthday next month and I'll be seeing her this Wednesday. Happy Mother's Day, Mami!

I love the photo of your mom. She looks very glamorous, and the black and white gives such a dramatic feel.
Happy Mother's Day to you too!

What an awesome photo! Stylish lady!

She is beautiful. The black and white really accents the mood. Her outfit would be right in style today

Thank you all for your kind words. I love this picture because it was taken during the years when my Mom was most active in her career as a university librarian. She's an amazing woman whose mind and physical activity is being robbed by Alzheimer's but I can still look at those aquamarine eyes and see a mother's love for her children.
