    I know it's celebrated on different days in different countries. In the US, we celebrate mothers today. I'd like to wish all the moms here a happy mother's day. Feel free to share a photo of your mother, too.

    Here's one of my mom in her pajamas playing with a very young Luke on one of his first Easters. My Dad choose a very curious framing for the photo. I guess I know whom to blame for my lousy compositional eye.

    Happy mothers day all, I rounded up my brothers and we had lunch with mum.
    She had a great day.

    Luke that looks very much like an Kodak Instamatic print you have there.
    I recently scanned a bunch of my film from the early 1970s.
    I was impressed really how good the Instamatic could be if taken in good light.

    Sunday was the first Mother's Day without my mother, who passed away the end of February, and it felt very strange. Even though I am in Albuquerque and she lived outside Boston, where I grew up, I always sent flowers, and of course always called her.

    This shot is one taken Mother's Day 18 years ago when she was here in Albuqueruque. From a little 2 inch Polaroid. I've posted it elsewhere, but I love the shot, so I'm putting it up here. That was before my hair was all white.
