Vivian Maier's self portraits

This is a fantastic image. I love everything about it.  Click on the photo to see the rest and read the story about Vivian and how her images were discovered.

My grandfather was an artist of sorts, and it obviously spilled over into his photography. He loved taking photos of flowers and of my grandmother when she dressed up for a special occasion. Here we have the two subjects combined! It looks a little like she's trying to extract some information from the sunflower, however the cosmos appear to be her friends. These two images together make me laugh. Originally I thought they were taken on the same day but she's wearing pants in the bottom photo.  I just got lucky is all.
Wait 'til I post the photo of her with his prize oranges!

On another note; It is common to see images of Grandma with her feet missing. Not sure why, but I have noticed that.
