Easy - Week #9

Sunday means one thing -- Easy time.  This week Kelly says...

Tell me......no, this time......Show me.......

"Your favorite picture of a child"


My favorite photo of my younger sister, Chris, in 1967.  Between her hand pressed against the surface of her reflection, and the look on her face, this photo holds a special place in my heart.  I remember the day it was taken, and earlier I showed you a photo from that same day of me reading a book to her.

I have many favorite children, and I know you all must be wondering why a photo of my grandbaby isn't here.   I'd really love to post a pic of her (I have a new one of her sleeping that is just soooooo darling), but I respect her parent's wishes to not post photos of her on the internet.

Oh I just love that photograph of your sister touching her own reflection.  A mirror reflection of herself.  I have one of my middle son, who was a thumb-sucker and a binkie (silkie-silkie) carrier with his face against his reflection, sucking his thumb, rubbing his silkie-silkie to his face.  I'ts so precious, I shall have to locate it and post at a later date.  Thank you for sharing this sentimental moment with us.

That's a beautiful picture...I'd blow it up and frame it!  There's something about b/w photos of children that captures their innocence and beauty.  I wish I had taken more b/w photos of my rugrat, but I'll live!  In today's digital world, anything's possible!

Thanks for sharing!
