Mothers and Daughters by Majnouna Mothers and Daughters by Majnouna
Mother and grandmother bring their newborn girl to the Meiji shrine, Tokyo. Captured in a split second as we were leaving the peripheral blur is a Lensbaby effect. I can't decide which photo I like best between this one and the next one which I'll post in a moment.

This is so lovely !
I love this tradition of bringing the baby daughter to the temple, all clad in a full-grown child kimono. I bought such kimonos for both my daughter, when they were babies. And now the older one wears it all the time. :-)

Heading to Tokyo in one month, I hope to see as much as you did.
Best wishes,

Thank you (a belated thank-you note).
Tokyo was astounding (as it should), but even more so as we were right in time to see the solar eclipse there.
Now, how cool is that ! ?

I think I prefer this one. I feel it balances the three of them well. Lovely shot! :D

I like this one better, even if the mother is not looking at her baby, she gives of such a warm smile and her mother is there giving also a complaisaint facal expression, its just "sigh...oh yeah a new family is great :)"

I also can't decide which one is better: In the next one, I like how the mother is looking at her baby. In this one, the grandmother helps to balance the photo...I know that doesn't help, but just thought I share :shrug:
