Poignant Moments

17 Jun 2021 4:27PM   Views : 465 Unique : 299

We all have poignant moments when things change, and today my pictures are a short photoset showing my late Mum as she left her flat in Abergele and came to live with Sue and I. She was with us for eight years before she died, so here we see the end of her days in Abergele and a picture showing the new discoveries she made living with us, such as this visit to Rufford Old Hall.

These were shot using the waterproof compact Pentax WG3. I think it's important to record all life events and they will have the most value of all our images for future generations. As I am currently finding as I work my way through the recently discovered old black and white negatives from the 1930s.
