Photograph of my mother, taken by her mother Rita Mills.
This is one of the first images captured by my grandmother that I have really taken the time to study.
There are so many elements within this image to take in. On a personal level its knowing that my grandmother more than likely made the Kilt my mother wears... as she did with most of my mothers clothes, she was a skilled seamstresses. My grandmother took great pride in her work knowing this I am truly fascinated by her choice of composition.
Time was taken here, time and care - the shadow so perfectly captured would have been by choice.
I did very little to correct this image... other than clean up a little damage from wear and tear.
