Entry for October's Scavenger Hunt - "Memories"

This well-loved doll originally belonged to my father's mother.
It stayed on her bed through the years and when she died, it came home with me.
It's stained, cracked, weathered and worn, much like we all are
as we live our memory-filled lives.
It also sits on the small blue rocker that I sat on as a child.

Keep your memories, I was thinking a statue, but a doll can be very special too.

What a shining moment in your career as a photographer, to pull up your relationship with Helen and her doll...and have her reaching out to you from another world into this one.

Love this! Fantastic focus and a wonderfully short DoF, but with enough of the background to hold the interest - a great composition...wonderful shot, Nancy!
Inga Morozoff02-Oct-2009 16:03
Wow!!! And you captured the mood perfectly! Very well done!
Timothy Guenther02-Oct-2009 14:18

Oh, what a lovely keepsake and I love the story behind it. It will be passed down for years to come!
Barbara Heide02-Oct-2009 12:49
wonderful moody shot... like the shallow dof, which adds mor mystery...

Beautiful DOF.

There must be a great story with this one.

beautiful capture, I'm doubting between a statue of Maria or a doll

Beautifully done and I'm sure that there are many memories here.

Childhood memories I bet, looks like quite an old doll, like the dof, you must have held it's hand a lot and it brought you comfort.
Laryl02-Oct-2009 05:23
I would like to know more about how this relates to memories, I bet there is a lovely story behind it. nicely done
