My Family Portrait

I love this photograph of my maternal grandparents, Esther and Ruben, on their wedding day, 1927 Morocco. I am especially intrigued by the contrast between their fashionable European dress and the Moroccan carpet in the background. Esther gave birth to sixteen children (!) out of whom only nine reached adulthood, she died giving birth to her sixteenth child, who did not survive as well.  This picture captures a promising innocent moment for the newly weds.

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.

    Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the very best in its
    field. Fantastic blog!

    Why visitors still make use of to read news papers when in this
    technological world all is presented on web?

  3. What’s up, everything is going sound here and ofcourse every one is
    sharing facts, that’s genuinely excellent, keep up
    writing.
