Beautiful light
falling on a beautiful subject

Beautiful sparkle in her eyes
Wonderful skin tone and background color

The pose, with the hand,
the simple shirt collar
all provide a wonderful
sense of unpretentious calm

I wish I'd been able to
capture my mother
in this light
and simple calm

Fond regards,
