Mixed Media Monday - Mothers

Mothers come in all varieties, and I've always felt this particular photo is very touching, and speaks volumes. I've blended a background and an image of jungle fabric overlay, along with a border. I'm glad you've stopped by! Thanks for your comments.

  11. A different view of motherhood, indeed. So beautiful and touching.

    I believe the original photo may have come from Melbourne, Australia, where someone got this lucky shot. It went all around the world at the time and was used in posters and other publications to raise funds for wildlife.

    I love your background, Bev.
