grandma's hands

Have you seen this before?

5 generations of women in one family documenting their hands - really powerful and just a nice heirloom for a family. I'm definitely going to do this next time my mom and I visit my Mom Mom.

The caption in the email I recieved with this picture read: I was privileged to take a photo of 'Five Generations of Women' shortly before my 93 year-old Grandmother passed away last year.
The photo, shown above, features the hands of my Grandmother,Mom, Sister, Niece and
Great-Niece. While I can't take credit for the idea, I was so happy to have had the suggestion & capture this moment.
