    This is a wonderful candid – I love the little kitty looking over her shoulder. Was it sitting on her?

    Oh ELLEN!!!!!! This is priceless … a darling, darling, darling image!!!!!! OH you have REALLY captured something so classic … the dear ones in our lives … unposed … unsuspecting … the b&w is an ideal treatment for the subject!!!! AND THAT KITTY!!!!!!!! HAHAHA!!!!!! I LOVE it!!!!!! The kitchen in the background, always the soul of any woman’s domain, with the stool under the oven, and the lacy curtains to the side … the light shining on her sweet face and fluffy, dear hair so beautifully … every little detail speaks to the heart!!!!!! Honey, you have truly made my day!!!!! It’s as if I’ve just had a little visit with my own dear mom, and her mom, and my aunties. What a gift!!!!!!!

  • Thanks so much for your kind comment Lois, she is now 90 years.
    She still runs the household by herself.
