I hope you don’t take my picture for today the wrong way! I’m not bragging. Our instructor today wanted us to photograph a word as a little reminder of something we need to hear, or something we would like affirmed.

Picture Fall, day 5

My mother gave me this charm years ago – for my first Mother’s Day, I think.  Today, as the mother of two teenaged girls, I question all my decisions.  Am I doing the right thing?  Will they appreciate what I do for them – if not now, someday?  Have I done the best that I can to raise people who will make good decisions and do right by themselves and those around them?  I’m sure I’m not the best mommy ever, but I hope that some day my girls will know that I’ve always tried my best to be the best mother I can be to them.

Of possible photographic interest:  I took this photo of my 3/4″ long charm with my 55-250mm lens and Raynox macro-converter attached.  I liked the vignetting that was created by the lens and use of flash – photographers, please correct my terminology or explanation here if I’m not saying this correctly!
