Charming Moms

2

During the month of the flowers, the good weather arrives and we enjoy it with the special day of the best of our families: with our mothers.

My mother is accommodating, calm, and with a big sense of humor. She’s always willing to get in front or behind my camera, helps me develop films at home and even takes my films to the lab. I would like to introduce you my mother, María.

Another mother who is very dear to me is my mother-in-law, Pepa, and I’m not sucking up to her, I’ve been lucky to get one of the “good ones!”

Finally, I would like to talk about the queens of our homes. Grandmothers, who are more than mothers, they are the mothers of mothers! They become even more special the older they get. Wrinkles talk about the dozens of stories they have and they are eager to tell them to the world. Below you can see a picture of one of my grandmothers, Marcelina (on the right side), and Saturnina (left), my grandmother-in-law.

Here is my tribute to these four “Manchegas!” I love you!

Analog kisses!

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
