People: Mum


Mum
f/3.2, 1/125s, Tamron AF SP 90mm Macro 1:1 f/2.8, Nikon D80

Mum is such an inspiration to me. She doesn't so much as teach me, she leads by example. Here, mum is seen looking up a dictionary for a new word she found while reading some Buddhist texts during meditation. Though she never had much formal education, through her lifelong learning habits, she continues to amaze all of us with her breadth of knowledge.

I was showing her some macro shots I had attempted earlier in the garden, when I realised the lighting was good, and decided to snap this picture. This picture captures the essense of mum perfectly - at peace with herself.
