Title • thicker than water

I mentioned that yesterday's shot was of our two eldest and two of their cousins: this one is of their mother, my youngest sister. She and her husband (and three kids) visited over the weekend, and it's quite some time since we last saw them as they live about 300 miles away and we both have young children, so it was great to see her. This visit though was particularly poignant as they're emigrating to Melbourne in a few months time, so this was probably the last time I'll see her for at least a year or two. And despite not seeing all that much of her in recent times, and that we'll easily be able to keep in touch by phone and email, the other side of the world seems like a long, long way away.

And I did try to take a few portraits, but none of them worked out, so I decided I'd settle for this one instead. It's not a great photograph, but I wanted to commemorate her visit, and say goodbye ... for the time being at least.

I'll miss her.
