I Try by fermented-elegance I Try by fermented-elegance
Picture of my Grandma. :)

She's 73, yet still has a young spirit. She cracks me the hell up. Unfortunately, she has cancer and won't be around too much longer. She beat deadline though, they said in september in about 9 months she would have passed away, but she beat the odds. I met her basically this year, because she was originally from winsconsin, but I'm glad I'm getting to know her more and more each day. She can't do a lot of things, which makes her sad, but she still insists on being rebelious, which makes me giggle. I think she's gorgeous too.
I was talking to her yesterday, and I told her she had a young spirit, she laughed a little and said, "I try"
She asked me not to forget her, and I told her I wouldn't.

She's sweet.
She's my grandmother, (Hot Rod) Nancy.

(Please, no pity comments)

My godmother Mary was the same way; rebellious and witty 'till the end. :)

Her favourite flower was a hoya, and she never saw it bloom, and it was just budding a few weeks before she passed away, but she said, word for word, "That F*cking thing better not bloom before I croak"

Cancer sucks.
Stay strong, my friend :)

(Mary beat the odds too. She had a year, she fought for 13, and near the end, she was told a week, she fought for almost 2 months :heart:)

Very beautiful and touching story. The photograph really made me smile, it's beautiful, and you're right, she's beautiful. Her smile is so genuine... it's hard to find those nowadays.
Thank you for sharing :] I hope she's doing alright

Thank you.

She died over a year ago.
But I believe she died peacefully.

She's who I want to be at that age.
And you're right ; she is so beautiful.

I like this because it is hard for me to look at older people..because it makes me uncomfterble. I love art that challenges me. Amazing work.

:D that's so sweet. This is one piece with a lengthy comment section, and i read it all! I hope all goes well for her. I love portraits of older people in black and white, it always catches some sort of expression you didn't see before.

fav!~ fo sho.

That's an amazing job of capturing expression! Well framed too! Just out of curiosity, how's the Powershot's IS featuring working out for you?
