I found the chair, lampshade, and 7Up bottle in thrift stores. From these props a story emerged.

It has taken me quite a while to consider myself a photographer. In my lifetime I have been daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, empty nester, widow, and partner. Never in those years was I a photographer. Frankly, except for family memories, I didn't have time. Some might, and have said that I am stubborn. I prefer determined. I have also been described as quirky, but only by those who say they love me. I have always seen stories in the world around me, laughed when perhaps I shouldn't, and I listen carefully.
