Knowing Eyes

    Pamela Hanlan

This is my great granddaughter. She and I share a sense for the dramatic, we understand each other, and she is comfortable in front of my camera. This was taken at the end of the visit and when she climbed on the fence I knew she would speak to me with those eyes.

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.
