Hello! The theme is GREEN at Take a Word to mark St. Patrick's Day. As I'm not familiarized to the date, I did something personal and added a Leprechaun hanging from a shamrock vine :) .
On the left is my mother, when she was 16 or so, in a B&W photo that was painted afterwards (something common those days), on the right is me, probably when I was 17, in a very poor shot. Coincidently, they are alike in some ways, so I put them together.
