My eyes settled on Monika's father, his facial expression and then his hidden outstretched arms. Even before reading Monika's explanation, these clues suggested to me that it was he that was the gentle force that encouraged his wife, who is avoiding eye contact with the camera, into the photograph. Then, from the position of his hands around them, I saw and was somewhat surprised by the span of his embrace. The sense of love is very real.

The image also reveals a strong family resemblance, grandfather to granddaughter. To me this says something about continuation of family lines across generations. Wonderful image.

I love this photo. My maternal grandparents stepped in to help raise me when it became necessary. I treasure my photos with my grandparents as I am sure Monika’s daughter will as well. Just a lovely photo that tells so much!
