FB Friday - My Stylish Mum


My favourite photo of my Mum, this photo was taken through the windscreen of our old Humba, in Zimbabwe around 1973. I love the storm clouds behind her, pregnant with rain. Mum was always fossicking on the side of the road for interesting things to take home, this is here returning to the car, triumphant with found object!

If only she had a blog, as someone is there with the camera ready taking all the photos.

That's an awesome photo, it's really surreal with the clouds and everything... and have you ever noticed how the line of the river/water matched up exactly with her hemline? It plays tricks with the eye... very cool! :o)

Wow, great photo, I love how it is all framed from the car and those clouds wo! Do you remember if you made it home before the storm?
