A then and now theme is a very good idea Ralph. Because when they have it I can send photos of my legs, before and now, especially now as they have more scabs on them since last time.They will be sure to go under the Must see category.

What a lovely clear photo, sless.
Excellent skin tones too, by the looks of it. =D>

The second photo was taken about a year ago, using the same camera, when Mam was 91. I suppose thinking about it, perhaps they would more appropriately have been posted on the 'then and now thread. :D

I love these Ralph - How her eyes stay the same over the 34 years between. A very smart lady I think.

I'd love to see a photo of her in the 1950's as another comparison.

Well done you =D> =D> =D>

Well Stottie as you have asked, I am going to take the liberty of posting such a photo, taken in the early 1950's, sadly rather faded and showing its age. This has nothing to do with the October competition, and I must ask Curley to forgive me if this is an abuse of the thread. [-o<

I can't see it would be an abuse of the thread as they are all portraits and very interesting of the same person over time.
How wonderful for you to still have your mother with you, at 91. :D
I hope there's a portrait at 101 one day, too.

Thank you Sherri, and yes, how lucky I am. She has been a wonderful mother and so I am indeed blessed. Mam's own mother died when she was only 43!

Probably my last contribution to the thread this month, taken with my Casio 5 mega-pixel compact at the Garter Ceremony at Windsor Castle in 2009. It has been cropped, then I have dimmed out the background using my newly acquired Elements 10, that I am still trying to get to grips with :-) Undoubtedly, from some of the things said about the Monarchy on the site, I'm putting myself up for some brick-bats to be thrown at me, but hey - so what! :D It was a smashing day and a great photo opportunity!

That's a real cracker Ralph, great detail and the depth of field is great makes HM stand
out from the background.

Thanks Mr Smith, I was about 7 feet away from the Queen when she passed, and was also able to get photos of the other Garter Knights, Heralds etc - all very colourful - if only I had owned my present camera then. :( When working, we weren't allowed to take cameras, so lots of great shots were never taken, but this time it was my day off, so no problems.

When I took the photo, I hadn't noticed, but a work colleague also on her day off, was on the other side of the path, with her mother, and they came out crystal clear near the Queen. The old mother was thrilled to bits when I gave her a 10 X 8 print to remind her of the event.
