Weekly Photo Challenge: Friendship
This has to be a popular topic but it is not so easy to take a photo which shows the depths and nuances. I have tried to write about friendship before as have many others. This is a photo of a photo which has been on my sitting room shelf for as long as I remember, a sunny day in Ireland, probably late 1920’s or early 30’s.
And now, the three in the photo below, taken 2012, have lived within a mile of each other since they were born, went to the same pre-school and now school, have shared babysitters and sleepovers, they know each other so well, may their friendship be with them always.
This challenge got me thinking about my mother who had many friends but two in particular, called (by us children) Auntie E and Auntie M. My mother and these friends had met early in their lives, aged 4 or 5, and their friendships continued until 77 years later when my mother died. I have no photos, but many pictures in my mind.
Thanks for the reminders!
