Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Reflections and Shadows
The original photograph or print is of a map which my Grandmother brought with her when she was seventeen and left her home country, Poland, for the promise of a new life in America. My ancestors were so poor, they could only afford passage on a steerage (animal/cattle) ship.
Grandma had very little possessions but brought with her a map of the village where she lived. When she was older, one of my uncles had it framed and it has hung in their kitchen ever since.
This is a photograph of that map, still hanging on the wall, in the kitchen, in the house where Grandma and Grandpa lived and died. My uncle is still alive and is the keeper of the map and the memories it holds.
The reflection is of the light above the kitchen table. I think it looks like a U.F.O.!
