This is a photo of my mother Winefred Riley. She died last week aged 91.
I took this on her 90th birthday. Apart from tweeking the levels this is exactly how it was shot. I was looking for a photo of her for the funeral mass and as I opened the directory of her birthday shots, this one was highlighted. There were two shots that appeared like this.
I have no idea why my camera did this and not really thought about it before now. If anyone has any idea how this happened I would like to know. You could spend hours in photoshop trying to reproduce this. Anyway, I like it.
She is in a better place now.

And about this photo : shortly before his death is always something mystical, otherworldly. Her soul is already knew she was gone to another world. Therefore, the soul has made such a blurred image, as in the parallel world.
