I think one of the reasons I became a photographer was to enable me to take this photograph of my grandson Douglas. I have photographed many children who have been compromised. I have portrayed them with the love I felt for them. What I saw was a child, no matter what his label was, a child…in need of love, attention and guidance. All children need to be treated with kindness and respect. Many do not have this opportunity.
My dearest Douglas, how does one express a grandmother’s love? It is beyond expression and I wish for every child, a love, to be able to become who they will be.
I was just informed by a friend to look at google images. When four photographs appear, with Rita Hayworth being the first one, print in the name of a photographer. I put in my name and was surprised to see some of my images reproduced. How does this happen? I have no idea, but it certainly is incredible what can happen without one even knowing it is there and it is very nice to see.
