My Mother & Me, December 1965


My Mother & Me, December 1965, originally uploaded by elefanterosado.

This photo was taken at my grandparents’ house in Princeton New Jersey, where I was born on December 8, 1965. My grandfather was a decent amateur photographer who liked to document life cycle events in his austere, Germanic way. This is actually part of a series he took, with yours truly making some truly odd baby facial expressions in a few of them. I love this shot because it just captures the essence of my mother, impeccably turned out in her navy green suitcoat, sitting in a matching chair by the window. She was always (and still is) a class act. I just wish her life hadn’t been so hard.
