bits of inspiration – #31.

This week Mashable published a series of photos of pre-fame Audrey Hepburn from a photo-shoot she did in London’s Kew Gardens in 1950. Even at 21, before her acting career had taken off, Hepburn conveys so much joy and humor through these images.

As I was looking at these I was reminded of some photographs of my grandmother that I saw for the first time last fall as I was helping my aunt to create a family photo album. I’m not sure exactly when and where the photos of my grandmother were taken but I would guess she was about the same age as Audrey here and the photos also seem to have been taken in a park. You can see more images from the photo shoot on Mashable. I’ve also included a couple of my grandmother’s photos below.
