A self portrait of sorts with my Grandmother during the celebration of her 92nd birthday back in January. My Sister was kind enough to trip the shutter release cable for me after I had setup and focused the shot. I have too few images of me and my Grandmother because I'm usually the one behind the camera taking photos of her with other family members and friends.
