Four Generation Photography


We are very lucky in my family to have four generations of woman, spanning 92 years old to 4 years old!

I saw this photography idea on Pinterest and I thought it would be fun (and harder than expected) to do a four generation photo myself.

I took a photograph of my grandmother (who is, from what Google says, the Greatest Generation), holding a picture of my mum from Generation Baby Boomers, holding a picture of me from Gen X/Y, holding a picture of my daughter from Gen Z

A photo, I'm sure that, in many years from now, will be one of my favourites and will be passed down. But for now, it's a Mother's Day gift.

  1. What a fantastic idea. I wish there was any way I could do this. But maybe 3 generations is fine too :-)

  2. How wonderful to be able to capture 4 generations. Maybe some day your daughter can add another picture and keep it going. So lovely!

  3. This is such a great idea. My family is all spread out so this would be a neat way to do a three or four generations photo. I stopped by from Fluster Buster.

  21. تخلصي من الحشرات في منزلك عندما يأتي الصيف وترتفع درجة الحرارة تبدأ سيدات المنازل في معاناتهم مع الحشرات التي تنتشر في البيت و تغزو المنزل، فإضافة لوجود الحشرات ، تعاني السيدات من اضطرارهم لاستخدام المبيدات الحشرية الكيميائية و ما ينتج عنها من أضرار صحية و روائح غير محتملة، لكن تبين مع التجارب أن هناك طرق فعالة للقضاء على الحشرات و بعيداً عن استخدام المبيدات.
