where did you go? by natalie angus

my Grandma at a family gathering on the one year anniversary of my Grandpa’s passing. We all took turns telling a story or memory of him. When I look at this photo I wonder where she went, what memory she found in this moment?

The title also has a double meaning – I like the story behind this version of the meaning – what memory did she go to in her mind. The other is that she is that she has alzheimers, and sometimes when she has this look I often wonder where she has gone.

Right now the Grandma that I used to spend every school holiday with is slowly slipping away from us. She is having more good days than bad and this was a good day as she was surrounded by her family.

What you see in my photography is what comes to me naturally, I am an avid amateur and aim for personal improvement and progression in the art of photography.

    Oh my, I’m fighting the tears – you have truly captured ‘emotion’, made an art piece out of the moment and cast it’s energy to the viewer – this is truly what art is all about. Thank you so much for sharing your story, along with an exceptional photograph. I am very impressed and moved. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  • thank you Barbara for your beautiful comment. I have added a little more to the details of the story as well, the title has a second meaning to everyone in my family as she is living with alzheimers.

    Wonderful capture of your Grandma. Looks great as a black and white. I lost my only remaining grandparent when I was 10. I miss her everyday.

  • Thank you Rebecca, it is hard losing grandparents.
