A long life, keeping busy keeps you young.
Yes, I like to take an image in before I read anything... My first thought - the contrast between the contrived artifice on the screen and real life.

NRK Dagsryven. Nothing says 'Norway' more to an insider than that, Anne!

Anne, I wouldn't have thought to try a shot like this but this is wonderful on so many levels.
There is the personal but universal level of an image of mother preparing a meal.

As an photo it has so much going for it. The story of a lifetime -- and maybe of generations is told here. It is amazing to see that TV in the same shot with the spinning wheel.
Your conversion is great -- keeping warm tones throughout -- in the real world and the TV picture.

I am in awe. First, at the brilliant concept and idea.

Second, at the sheer beauty of the image. The deep focus, perfect exposure throughout, clean tones and crisp light...wowww.

Well done, Anne. I wish I had two user awards to give out today Sad

I love the tones in this, so crisp and clear. I love the depth to the image as we work out way from the TV right to the kitchen in the back. And the lampshade is so retro.

Thanks so very much for the receiving this image so well. It is of course very personal for me, so objectivity is out the window so to speak. I just knew that I wanted it in my PF here.

Thanks especially to both Walter and Chris for their UA's which are deeply appreciated.

When I saw the thumb I wasn't expecting too much but I am pleased to say how wrong I was. This is very, very good. Extremely well composed it manages to be both ordinary and exceptional. It tells a story of everyday life that we all can relate too. An outstanding image Anne.

Obviously a truly memorable shot for you in itself Anne, but also a fine shot by any other standard too, well deserving of the awards!
Have just done the math and I reckon your mother is approaching her 91st. birthday, and still active in the kitchen, quite remarkable!
