This took... maybe ten minutes from idea to upload day of Rollover.

I'm in a severe slump over photography ambition lately.

But, I entered.


It's Hubby's hands and my parents. He wrote her love letters during the war.

The Bible is my great grandfather's (whose photograph is featured in my current "Old" challenge entry) and is in a metal-lined, antique, wooden safe box.

Another stunning image, the lighting in this image is perfect as well as what you created. It looks spontaneous not set up. Your image is a stand out in the crowd. 10

Very poignant, Lydia! Excellently done! You truly have a gift if you can turn out such great work "in a slump"! Congratulations!

Congrats on the yellow, Lydia. Beautifully poignant picture. My Dad wrote love letters to my Mum during the war, too. But she disposed of them when she had to move residences while he was still away. So sad - I can't even imagine the circumstances.
