A brief perhekuvaus regard from the post-Italian coma before I dive into the huge pile of work.
As a member of the International Evening of Kameraseura, the Helsinki club for photo-enthusiasts who want to speak English, I am challenged on a regular basis with fun assignments that my friends come up with. The recent was to choose 1 (one) meaningful image we took this summer.
But summer this year only happened in Italy …
I was on holidays and that means holidays from my camera as well – even though I, of course, took images, mostly snapshots. Hearing the challenge I knew instantly which photo is the most meaningful to me. (They are two, I am a mother and don’t respond well to being presented with Sophie’s choice.)
This is my Dad passing down the generations the eternal art of chess and the graceful art of pike diving. (Love you, Dad!)
You see, I have no photos of me and my grandparents. I would have contended myself with just a few:
- a photo of me and my grandmothers baking
- a photo of me and my grandfather getting ready for a hunt
- a photo of me and my other grandfather when he was performing magic tricks (he was an exceptionally skilled magician)
I hope my children will treasure these images as gold one day. For now, I am off first to print these and then to start delivering all I promised before I left for the sunny break. Thank you for waiting up for my return and before I overflow you with images of all my beautiful clients, leave me a comment below what is the one photo you (would) treasure.
(For the Monday morning, I chose my and my Dad’s favorite, famous Czech jazz singer Vlasta Pruchova It might as well be spring.)
