A Tribute to Baba

I'm a photographer, not a writer, but
Mama Kat's writing assignments today really inspired me. I think I might be breaking the rules, but I'd like to post photos of my grandma. We called her Baba. She's my Mom's Mom, and I loved her very much. I didn't shoot these snaps, but they're special to me.

Waking up at home in San Francisco. Both Rudy the Cat and I are in black.

Baba (left) and Grandpa got married in Trinidad. Her twin sister, Joanna and Uncle George were in the wedding, too.

When I was in middle school, Baba lived in DC. We would go over to her house most weekend mornings for conversation, crossword puzzles and, of course, OJ.

My Mom wrote a poem about Baba this morning at her place. My Baba was the best!
