every moment is a photo opp.

i love the tea at this restaurant.
they serve mightyleaf tea,
and it's mighty good.

my mom took me out to lunch here,
and everything was so colorful and picturesque.

poor mama. she can't even drink in peace.

"put the bloomin' camera down, georgia!"

{well, that's not what she really said.
but something like that.}
"sorry, mama.
you didn't realize you were taking
my camera out to lunch too, did you?"

maybe i should frame the first shot
and give it to her as a gift?
then she'll take me to lunch again.
{wink}

I know your momma loves you no matter how how many times you get her with your camera...I just know she does !

The first pic is beautiful! The second one grips the heart.
That will be one to be treasured for sure.
The third one cracked me up...I've seen that long suffering look from loved ones many times as I've snapped pic after pic.
The thing is...I did that one thanksgiving...I just kept taking pics and disregarded the looks. A loved one passed and the pics then became beloved for it captured the loved one in his element, laughing with family.
Priceless.
Keep on shooting, Hun. You'll never regret it.

I am always snapping away, in spite of the protests. That's how I get some of my best photos! These are priceless, and make a nice collection. Try a collage and hang it yourself! The time you spend together is precious, and priceless...and mom's love you anyway:).

Joy said...

That was cute... glad you two enjoy each other's company. Love the colors in the resturant, and I really like the closeup of the first photo.

Joy said...

P.S. I always loved going out to lunch with my mom, cause it always involved shopping and she usually bought me something! Good memories.

My mother has had lunch with me once in the last twelve years so this is exceptionally wonderful to see. Even the disgruntled part. Always keep taking photographs of your mother that loves you. Clearly. You're one lucky duck, Georgia. And your mother is fairly lucky to have you, too. :) p.s. off to check out more of your music on Ethereal. thanks for the tip and I changed my profile to show my email. I hadn't considered it, actually.
