Focal Length:70mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:NIKON D4

It was 5 minutes and counting until the start of the wedding ceremony……….. but we had to stop and get this image with bride, her mom , and her grandmom………..  oh by the way the necklace is a family heirloom handed down to each bride to wear on their wedding day!   I would like to dedicate this post to a new blogger friend of mine … This quote is the opener to her  blog and I feel it is so appropriate for this photo.   ” You don’t take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it.”  ~ Author Unknown   courtesy of  http://northerndesert.smugmug.com/   Please visit !

  1. This photo just gives me chills. As the middle generation (Mom, although mine are not yet old enough to be married), I know that this bride will blink and she’ll be the next generation in a photo like this. She is sure to cherish this photo for the rest of her life. I love it!

  2. Beautiful. Wonderful photo. Great photography.

  3. Oh my! I was admiring your photograph and the beautiful way you captured this moment and noticed the quote and nice point to my blog. Thanks so much Sally. I love the black and white image and positioning of the hands. Artfully done. So much said here with no words. Just lovely.

  4. beautiful.. we had 4 generations in my mother’s hospital room before she passed away.. I wish I had taken a photo like this.

  5. What a beautiful capture….. this image says so much about what led to this moment..through the hands… each woman having worn the bracelet….

  6. Hands of three generations, nicely done. I happen to like just taking pictures of hands and feet, no face.

So I’ve been drawing pictures from magazines for years: Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Sports Illustrated. As a result I’ve accumulated a stack of sketchbooks on my bookshelf. I thought I would use this as a place to post the ones I like best. Hope you enjoy!
