My mum asked me to take some portraits of my lovely grandmother and I was happy to oblige. I posted the black and white shots on facebook because they are more dramatic, but here are some of the color versions too. I can never decide which I like better.
In the color, her face just radiates.
It in the black and white you really notice her features and smile.
I asked her to do the Japanese V thing that they all do in pictures and she was sweet enough to oblige.
This is one of my favorites.
I loved how she grabbed the tree branch in this one. Again, color or black and white? The nice pattern of the leaves come through in the color.
But this one makes her face pop more (and I tightened the crop). What do you all think?
By this time our light was gone so we came inside and snapped some pics.
I love this because my grandma ALWAYS wears an apron when she cooks.
This one isn't very fancy, and you can't see any faces, but it's Grandma in her element, giving treats to the little ones in her kitchen.
