Sunday hello, sun here today, for mothering moments and other such sundries!
I know that this day celebrates them that raise us, as they say, and it gives me a good excuse to feature some recent photos of my granddaughter, Thea, and her mom, my daughter Rebecca, now living nearby!

Then, starting home from town very recently, with my camera in the car, I realized there was some amazing evening light going on. I hadn't planned to make photos on my way home, but how could a photographer resist this confluence of that light on sky, trees, and water! I'm including a few of the photos I took at the same time as this first one in order to share how it all came about.
|I had pulled over in front of a retail building, and the road home is on the left.|
|Here I'm getting closer to what I want in my photo.|
|I made this photo as a record of where I was and how the storm sky looked just before I got back on the road to continue home -- after those magic moments.|
In fact, we've had lots of rain here recently. I made these next photos in a favorite spot along the ridge where I live.
I'm sure there are some beloved moms buried in this Cox family cemetery. I don't want to say anything Hallmark-y, but I know we each have our own particular feelings on Mother's day -- and every day -- and I love hearing these individual stories. May I suggest that we honor the day by telling someone our stories or by asking to listen to a story.
Remember - share stories!
