Three Muses challenge Ancestors
The challenge at The Three Muses this week is " Ancestors " . thethreemuseschallenge.blogspot.com
I don't have any ! Well I do we all do but I don't have any photographs . So what have I done, Ive borrowed my good friend Barbara's ,and besides her family is prettier than mine. !
The two children in the photograph are Anniki and Paavo born in Finland 1920 and Anniki is Barbaras grandmother and the little boy is her Uncle. Anniki studied Art and design and later became a photographer which was something unusual for a young woman at this time.
One of her main hobbies was to travel and to capture these images with her camera.
She died at the young age of fifty leaving behind the most beautiful album of photographs documenting her life , her travels , her spirit and freedom .
This photograph is a tribute to Barbara's grandmother who she never met but learned to love her through the photographs she left behind.
