  1. What a wonderful set of photos, Ruth! A beaming bride and her 2 brothers proudly standing behind her. And they’re gently holding her in both photos. Beautiful in so many ways.

    The power of photography; captured moments in time; beyond the limitations of words; so many facets and meanings; new memories to cherish and treasure.

  15. Brilliant Ruth…we have three boys and one also born in 1980. Wish I had had this idea it’s a cracker well done. Mine 31 year old is a DJ Music Producer, he’s recently returned from the States he loved every minute. He is currently on his way back from Italy where he just done a one-night-stand.
    He works under the name of Jozif. He has a Sound cloud Page and Facebook, check him out (Google).

    BTW the last pic is lovely.

    • Thanks for stopping by and writing a nice comment. I will check out Jozif now!

  17. fine tribute – and: yes, a birthday is a reason to take look back …

  18. I *love* the title of this post. So poignant; there are so many things parents know that their children simply will never comprehend (no matter how old the ‘children’ become). Happy birthday to your son.
