Honoring thy Mother and Father

There are a couple of days coming up that are ways of celebrating those who brought us into the world, or celebrating others who brought our children into the world, or celebrating those who guided us in some way: Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Last year on Lenscratch, we had our first exhibitions celebrating those persons, The 2011 Mother’s Day Exhibition and the The 2011 Father’s Day Exhibition.

If you are intersted in sharing something with us (and it’s a really inexpensive gift!),check out the Lenscratch Exhibition Opportunites. Feel free to submit an old family photo, and if you’d like up to three sentences about the person. Due dates are firm!
