Are you asking yourself, "How can she take this photo?" I guess that's a good question.
First of all, I needed to take it. Secondly, sometimes it's so much easier for me to deal with something if I'm looking through my lens.
My mother never expected to be sitting watching her son die, but she is, at the age of 82, doing just that. They've reconciled a lifetime of separation in just a few days and this image breaks my heart for that reason.
