These next few in the series feature a collage of photos from a variety of eras in the family history.  The idea is to unite various members of the family in a continuous timeline.

Memories.....memories....nobody takes them away...memories stay in the mind what ever we do and what path in life we take.
Wonderful picture, kept me staring at it for a long time and my mind made overtime....
anniedog: Thank you for those kind words Astrid - they mean a lot. You are certainly right about the memories.

I find this picture very moving. Reaching back through time to distant memories. This is a very special picture
anniedog: I'm glad you like it Bill - it's a special picture for me too.

I agree with all comments- a moving and rather moved (a fresh sea-wind seems to blow through hairs, grass, and pic!) photo- wonderful the combination of former, quieter, calmer looking mother-child-relationship in the childhood (b&w) and wilder looking mother-child-relationship many years later (colours)- the intimacy and narrowness of mother and child has been captured in a very touching- beautiful way! A great pic, one of the best in this series -in my opinion concerning theme and photographical technique!
For the younger people: Little "Nackedeis" could be seen at beach in past times, too, as I remember!
anniedog: You are right about the fresh sea air - this is the British seaside on the east coast - Mablethorpe, near Skegness, taken about 20 years ago. I'm glad you like this one so much Philine as it's a very special photo for me. You have perfectly understood the nature of the mother/child relationship.

really good job..I love the concept!
anniedog: Thanks very much.
Ingrid
And it is working well, Ingrid. I do like the balance of the layers here. That is a very tender and touching photograph at the beach.
anniedog: Thank you Chad. I agree about the layers - I wanted them to be intermingled, not completely distinct.
Ingrid
So much innovation in this one Ingrid .... Must be a really special result for you I guess. richard
anniedog: Yes, I'm pleased with this one Richard. Glad you like it.
Ingrid
Excellent result Ingrid. This must be quite moving for you!
anniedog: I was very pleased with the effect of this one Richard.

It really is touching, Ingrid. For some reason, I keep looking at the other "grouping" with yellow bucket and imagine them being merged here with YOUR history somehow. Very strange effect for me...in a wonderful, melancholic way.
anniedog: Thanks Ginnie - I think all the stuff belongs to us - this was a mums and children outing to the beach. I agree about the melancholic effect - just looking at old photos does that to me!

It's nice.

OK, to link in with the others where you've got the older picture in the background as a "memory", does this fit in with that?
anniedog: Yes, I would say that was the effect I was aiming for - a combination of memory and intermingling of generations.
Ingrid
The main subjects reflect that which has gone by in the family over previous generations, good idea Ingrid.
anniedog: Thanks Brian - that was the idea.
Ingrid
I've connected generations with a plant and photos. A hoya grows over portraits of different generations. I find it very significant to me with the plant symbolizing growth. I find this collage meaningful in that way too.
anniedog: A climbing plant like a hoya is a good symbol for growth. I think everyone can recognise something personal in photos such as these.

I know these beach babies, happy times ;o)
anniedog: I should hope you recognise us - this was taken at the beach at Mablethorpe when Cheryl and children came to stay. Happy times indeed - some of the best, but you only realise that in retrospect.
Ingrid
stunning Ingrid, nothing butsmile
anniedog: Thanks very much Tim.

lovely shot.. and nice effect also.
anniedog: Thanks very much Sakeeb - it's nice of you to drop by.
Ingrid
Missed this one on first pass. Was this taken on the holiday where I joined you in the south of France? The whole series is making me feel very sad.
anniedog: This was taken in Mablethorpe! It was a day out with my friend and various children just after we had moved to Lincolnshire. Sorry, didn't mean to make you feel sad!
