oldie but a goodie

This week over at iheartfaces, the weekly contest theme is hands.  My entry is an older image from a couple of years ago, but still remains one of my very favorites.  Such a sweet, sweet connection between this little one and her great grandmother.



  1. Jean this is so beautiful. Everything about it. The emotion, the black and white and the crisp focus. Great shot!
