Captured Moments in Ohio

A visit to the US in her spring of 2007 for my daughter's fifth delivery brought me to Ohio, Colombus. Inspite of an excrutiating journey of seventeen hours from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and sprinting 200 meters in my high heels to catch the connecting flight from Detroit to Ohio, it was a moment that I was not to regret.

I witnessed, with bated breath, the birth of my fifth grandchild, a healthy, bouncing baby boy, I spent precious moments with his sisters and a brother and I had invaluable mother and daughter time, amidst diapers, dirty dishes, and my daughter's lovely and lively girlfriends.

It was time well spent and although most of it was spent at my daughter's home I was fortunate enough towards the end of my stay to have been able to glimpse and catch snatches of beautiful Ohio country, its scenic river Scotio and some beautiful homes.

I have captured glimmers of these precious picturesque moments and I share them with you.

Mirror Lake at the Ohio University was exceptionally beautiful when I captured it. A looking glass that shimmers in the sun. It was a reflection for thought.
