Loving mother tends daughter
Womanhood is here.
Two weekends ago I was taking photos at a Peninsula Friends of the Library event at Malaga Cove Library and when I looked into the adjacent park, a photographer was taking the formal photos of this beautiful young girl's Quinceañera. It was just mom, daughter and photographer and I'm sure that later that day or perhaps sometimes later, a huge party marking her 15th year would follow. I popped out the door and shot this photo. Living in Southern California with a large Latino population, this milestone is often celebrated and my own granddaughter was in one when she lived with me.
I keep my thousands of photos in iPhoto and I had to search for this photo of a young librarian patron I took at the Malaga Cove Library some years ago. I like to imagine that this little girl in her pink dress will somehow be that beautiful woman above.
