What photographs mean to me… they are warm fuzzy nostalgic time capsules that flood my mind with stories. They are an emotional blanket that wraps me in cherished memories of beloved people and simple, poignant moments of the past ….that I can never get back, but I can treasure forever because they were captured in these photographs.
This is one of my favorite images that I have created till date. This is my beloved grandma sitting at the steps of our ancestral home in Kerala, India, deeply engrossed in one of her favorite things to do…reading. We were truly blessed to have her around till the wise old age of 98. Every wrinkle and silver strand speaks of a life lived with grace, courage, faith, strong will, wisdom, love, and an amazing sense of humor. Miss her dearly.
