This is the picture I like best of my Mom. She's gone now for more than ten years, but I have this photo on the wall above my computer desk and look at her every day. She was so beautiful in this pic which was taken when she was in her late 30's or early 40's.

Mom age 40


Beautiful! She looks like a movie star.
I've always thought that she looked a lot like Elizabeth Taylor in this photo. My Dad idolized her and looking at her when young, I really understand why.

Your mom was stunningly beautiful! Her skin was flawless and it was way before photoshop. I hope you got some of those genes.
Unfortunately for her, but fortunately for me, she was unable to have children so I was adopted. But I got someone's genes, and I can't complain too much - it's been good so far :-)

She was a real looker, though, for sure!

Wow! She was a stunner.
She was indeed a beautiful woman.

She looks like a film star.
She really does, doesn't she? She was exceptionally beautiful when she was young.

What a beautiful lady! I love the photos from that era... so glamorous and refined.
I also love the photos from that time frame. I think we've lost a bit with our digital throw-away times now, but gained in some other aspects.

What a beautiful, speaking picture of a woman of true beauty! Also one of the examples where BW photography really feels superior to coloured - I can't imagine this having the same intensity as a coloured shot.
She was a gorgeous woman into her elder years. I agree, I don't think she would have looked nearly as elegant in color as she did in black and white.

It is a really beautiful picture.
Thank you - I have always loved this photo of her.

She was very beautiful, and the Black & White enhances that. I look at the studio portraits of my mother and think the same.
Thank you so much. She was so much more beautiful that I ever have been, and I adore this picture of her.

Truly a beautiful photo
I really love it. The photographer was used by my entire extended family for many years for studio and candid photos and they were all wonderfully composed and stunning. He was a real artist.

What a gorgeous photo...she is beautiful!
She was a very elegant and socially adept person who loved beautiful things and taught me a great deal about art and the creation of art. Thanks for thinking her photo is a lovely as I've always thought it to be.
