MOMS IN LOVE, volume 43


Wendy Brandes writes: "My father took this picture of my mother, Barbara, while they were still dating in the mid '60s. I love the ruffles on the sleeves."

You know when all of a sudden, the most ordinary moment becomes blindingly beautiful and you need to rip your shirt open, or plunge into an ice cold pool, or take a picture at the exact right millisecond to show the world how warm it all feels, and amazingly you do? I see Wendy's dad shaking his head. He knows what I'm talking about.

My all time favorite of my wife, Barbara. I remember taking this photo almost 50 years ago. A beautiful BABE, two pillows and one click - done. How Wendy got this photo is beyond me.

What a great photo... the colors, the composition. George was always a good photographer! I guess it helps when the subject is beautiful :)

The camera loves the subject as much as the photographer does. You can tell :)
