(If youre interested in following the accompanying narrative, the images in this series are best viewed in order, 1-5.)

Her widowed mother continues to live in their old family home, where she visits her twice weekly. Today she finds her mother making the double bed and so she stands on the opposite side to help, carefully creasing the sheet into the precise hospital corners her mother taught her when she was a child. The scent of her fathers aftershave is suspended in the air between them and the older woman is suddenly reminded of that morning long ago, before the children were born, when he had forgotten to buy milk and she to fill her car with petrol. In his Hillman Husky on the way to the shop, still partially wrapped in the not-yet-forgotten cosiness of their bed, she braked suddenly to avoid hitting a dog chasing a cat across the road. As the car jolted to a stop, a forgotten lipstick, that wasnt her shade, rolled slowly from its hiding place under the passenger seat

She shakes the memory away and, smiling wistfully at her daughter across the bed, plumps the pillows once more and suggests a nice hot cup of tea.

Cheers, Jim - thank you for your kind comments ...

Sorry if Martin isn't into this but what's wrong with small details like this which bring back wonderful memories...my Dad'd Huskey was in better condition than this but this makes a far far better photograph.
Love it

a fine image of the Hillman in its decaying state. A thought provoking description, we all have our memories and the realities of the past some of which became our future dependent on where a person is now in their life may be the past...the circle continues Smile complex eh!

P.s. no crocs...I'm dissapointed

That's okay Martin, I wouldn't have expected such idle sentimental ramblings to be your thang! lol Just having a bit of fun with a different approach to some shots I took of this abandoned car which I found during a country stroll last weekend. (None of the accompanying 'memories' belong to me, or anyone else that I know of for that matter!) Thank you for dropping by to take a look ...

Always appreciate you taking the time to view my posts, David - thank you ...

And nope, Kin - not a croc in sight, sorry! {~} Grateful for you stopping by ...

Having just read the web pages on the work of Patrick Hall, I can see more clearly what you are doing Susie. These picture and story "ensembles" are an interesting and thoughtful approach to photography, to be applauded to my mind.
