In swimming in Lake Ponchatrain with her Father and Aunt Augusta
With long hair and her brothers and sister in Gardenia California
With her beloved trumpet!
Today is Geraldine Joyce Shipley O'Brien's 71st birthday! She was named after her father Gerald who I have to thank for my love of photography.
(we have tons of old 4x5 negatives from his old Graflex camera).
She was almost born in Bluefields Nicaragua while he worked for United Fruit Company but they came back to New Orleans so she would be born in the States.
Here are some of my favorite pics of her.
Happy Birthday Mom! xoxo-Katie
