I enjoyed seeing the variety of enticing drinks we’ve all sampled while traveling.

Photo Hunt No. 20 (May 19, 2019) – Vintage
Photo Hunt No. 21 (May 26, 2019) – Night

While visiting Rome in 2017, my sister and I stumbled upon a racing event in Piazza Navona. We noticed that the participants gathering at the start line were women (mothers) and their children. Only 5 seconds into the race a young boy takes a hard fall and he starts to cry. Rather than giving up, his mom picks her son up and although they are dead last they both cross the finish line to a round of applause. Soon, the next group gathers at the start line and I spot the same mother running her second race. Some of the mothers ran more than one race as they had more than one child entered. The best life lesson this mother taught her son on this glorious day in Rome, is when you fall down, you need to get right back up and never give up.

Wishing all the Moms at home, around the world and up above a very Happy Mother’s Day!

The next group of participants takes off and I spot the same mom running again.

Contest 2019 Winner!
While shopping in Khan El Khalili market in Cairo, I asked this young mother if I could take a picture of her and her child. I love to take pictures of people and this is one of my favorites. I call it Madonna and Child. When I look at the photo, I think it may be closer to reality than what the great masters of Europe created in paint and sculpture.
