I've finally gotten around to bettering my blog and updating banner graphics to a point of satisfaction, and I've decided to share the story behind the photos above for those who have yet to hear it.
About three years ago I found a polaroid of my mother sitting on a car. The photo was taken in the mid to late 70's when my mother was around 18 or 19 years old. I, at this time, was about the same age. Under the assumption that the car belonged to her, I thought that it would be a neat idea to take a polaroid of myself on my own car, mirroring the image. I blew the photos up to about six or seven inches and framed them as a mother's day gift. Presently, the photos are hanging quite nicely adjacent to each other in the downstairs bathroom.
Come to find out later on, the car in the photograph wasn't my mother's after all. Needless to say, she still adored the gift.
On a related notion, Wednesday is also my mom's birthday, which I think is why I felt the urge to utilize these pictures in some form or fashion.
I am, however, at a loss of more creative gift ideas, which is a first.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd love to hear from you!
