Ruminations and recipes from a small kitchen in a big city.

Old photographs.

Two weeks ago, my brother posted this photograph dating to 1971. The two aunts - sisters - at far left and third from left died in 2001 and 2008 respectively. By chance everyone else in the picture met again last week at the funeral of the middle aunt's husband. He made 95. My second-cousin, holding her grandmother's hands, is now in her early forties. Her hair is still the same colour. Second from right is my mother.

Your mother photographed well. But I guess, given your father's business, she learned to.

You had to chase her to get a photograph. Even today she runs off for make-up and a brush.

She has an engaging smile in that one.
