Leaburg Dam, Oregon, Fish Lake, Oregon









I have noticed as I go through mama's pictures, every once in awhile I come across a photo of my father. Not portrait, he is just there. It says something about them to me, each one I find makes me realize how little I actually knew of their lives together. I have pictures of Randy in the same way, he unaware, and rarely shared, just there for me and my heart. I think it was the same for mom.When I mentioned it to her she got shy and said, yes I have a few of those, head down and a sheepish smile creeping up her face, As though it was shameful in some way. Photos are windows, I see that more and more each day.

Photos can tell you so much but you need to be careful of your interpretation. Your mom is a pretty good photographer!!!

Oh yes, everyone seems to see mine differently so I know to be cautious. As far as my Mama goes I talk to her enough to fine out if I am thinking right or wrong. I would never make assumptions on photos alone. Mom did okay with the camera, and she had tons of fun.
