Day 9/365: In Memory of Her

Today's my grandmother's birthday....she would have been 90 years old. To celebrate her today, I decided to photograph her jewelry box. I know bits and pieces about the contents and have always loved the pin that I have hand-painted.  This pen was a Mother's Day gift to her from her 11 children with her birthstone and theirs.  I think this is such a great symbol of love and gratitude and find it a rare gift these days.

What I love about this photograph: I can imagine her opening this jewelry box on a Sunday morning and picking out a piece to match her dress.
Technical Stuff: Nikon D40; 19.0mm; 1/60s; f/3.5; ISO320

Beautiful. I love how that one piece stands out alone.
