"Aunt Mildred's 100th Birthday Party" by Eric Rennie

The image above has been awarded an honorable mention in a juried competition called Gathering at the A Smith Gallery in Johnson City, TX, near Austin.  The photo was taken at my aunt's 100th birthday party when she was still living alone at the family farm in Blackstone, MA.  She later moved to a convalescent home near two sons in Maine.  At the time of her death at age 106, she was reputedly the oldest resident in the state.  Another of my photographs, entiled "Vets," is also part of the exhibit, which runs from January 8, 2016 until February 14, 2016.  The juror for the show is photographer Jennifer Shaw.
