Mother’s Skillet

Mother's Skillet

I’ve been thinking about this image for weeks if not months. I’ve told friends and family that I wanted to make an image of bacon in a skillet. I told them that I would go to the butcher’s and get a “special” subject and title the image “Consider The Bacon”. I took action yesterday and this is the picture.

As I processed it and spent time with it though I realized that it really wasn’t about the bacon at all. It was my mother’s skillet that was driving this process. I inherited this skillet more than 25 years ago. Wherever I’ve gone, it’s been with me and I expect that it will continue in service for someone long after I’ve stopped cooking.
