OMG, Ingrid. Will you hang this on your wall somewhere?? You should!
anniedog: If I can find a frame to fit it, I might, though there's always the problem of where to put it!

in this particular order?
anniedog: The order you see them is the order described, though obviously not the order of birth.

Many thanks for this great, very impressive and very moving personal series! - you have lifted up the curtain of the past, your own childhhood, and we were allowed to look for some time behind it- I like the row and the order of these five women at the "end of the line" - yes, it was also a series about women in their time, in their relationships and of/on their own- the differences can be now well noticed- each of them is a personality, powerful, self-conscious, and caring for each other... they all belong together in memory, in spirit, in heart, and - some of them- in flesh...
anniedog: Thanks very much for your kind comments, as always, Philine. Normally only close friends and family members get to see family photographs but I was glad to share them. I have very much enjoyed doing this series.

A clever montage
anniedog: Thanks Nigel.
Ingrid
Fascinating end to this wonderful series Ingrid.

Wonderful work Ingrid, you should be proud of this shot, indeed the whole series
anniedog: Thanks Tony. It has rather been a labour of love, but I'm glad I did it.
Ingrid
Great series Ingrid, very personal to you I imagine. What a finish, you have quite taken my breath away with this.
anniedog: Thanks Brian - you are right, this has been a very personal series and a lot of hard work, but I'm glad I did it and was able to share it with everyone.

Interesting photograph. I like the timelessness that you have given this, Ingrid. One looks for likeness but I sometimes wonder whether we see it out of desire more than actuality.
anniedog: Thanks Chad. Likeness is a strange thing. A resemblance will surface in a pose or an expression, and then you look at other photos and we look nothing like eachother. My mother, Katie and I all share similar eyes and brows.

If I described the post 2 days ago as ART. I must say that yesterday's post is even better and this one today inspires me a deep admiration for your work. The best I've seen for a while.
anniedog: Thank you very much for you kind words, Albert. I'm so glad you have enjoyed the series.

I keep looking at this post, 5 generations, this must have been a lot of work to make this into one line-up.
Thank you for sharing these very personal pictures with us.
anniedog: Thanks Astrid. Yes, a fair amount of work went into this but I think it was worth it in the end. I'm glad to have been able to share them with you.

Both charming and poignant too Ingrid...
anniedog: Thank you Chris - yes, there is a poignancy to this, as there is to most old photographs. They are a kind of memento mori.
Ingrid
I like the veiling effect of the overlays. Very evocative.
anniedog: Thank you Jamoula - easily done if you have a photograph of a net curtain!
Ingrid
I find the order interesting, that adds an extra layer to this great image
anniedog: Thanks Aksel - yes, the order is not the one you would expect!

My highest appreciation- I now really can imagine what for a hard work this series might have been - in some respects- a poignant work, but perhaps also an important work of processing...“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” - but I now believe to see something 'invisible' in your pics what may intensify my feeling and understanding --in any case a very moving tribute...- many thanks once more again!
anniedog: Thank you Philine - there is obviously an undercurrent in my pictures which some have picked up on and some have not. I hope they can be enjoyed on different levels. Thanks again for all your insightful observations.

A terrific collage and very powerful with K looking out so enigmatically from the centre.

I've been thinking about the passing generations a lot lately as I trawl through my family history. And today we go a phone call to say that Mine's grandfather died this morning. He was 96.
anniedog: Thanks Ian. It's inevitable as we get older that we start thinking more like that. I'm sorry to hear about Mine's grandfather. It's sad whatever age they go, but 96 is definitely an achievement.
Ingrid
This is a great idea again : Thumbs up !
anniedog: Thanks for your comment as always.
Ingrid
