tip #35--have a picture taken of you sewing


I asked Andy and Seth to take pictures of me sewing the other night. Between the two of them there are about 20 images, most of which I will delete, but I liked this one.
My mom has been sorting photographs and I especially like the ones that show family at work or doing something. The face the camera and smile ones are fine, but I love the ones that show what was important in people's lives.

Ah, your mom was like my mom. When the weather was hot, let the kids run around in their underwear. Less laundry for her, cooler for the kids. We could have been twins with that outfit and haircut, if that's you in the bottom picture.

It's true; pictures taken in the moment are more meaningful than the smiling ones. In the second picture, I had black and white shoes like that. Funny how you are all dressed up against the cold, bonnets and all, but bare legs! (not criticising as I have photos like that too.) Must have been a thing of the time.
One would think your mother was not too happy when the third photo was taken of her with her curlers still on! My mom would have had a royal fit about that one. But that's how it was back then; curlers on Saturday so she looked good on Sunday. Thanks for sharing the memories. ;^)

That's a great tip. I like action shots too, because they provide a slice of life and tells a story.
