The bed in the photo belonged to my folks and was passed along to my kids when they needed a bed frame. It always reminds me of the comfort of my parents' room, decorated with long billowing sheer curtains and a floral comforter. One of my earliest memories is standing at the foot of that bed in my parents' room, an an angle very similar to the view in this photo. It's in my daughter's room now, and while I was looking through my test shots, I was struck by this photo - because it reminds me so much of that memory. I wonder if somehow I subconsciously decorated her room to look like theirs because of this bed, perhaps to fill the room and create in her a comforting memory like my own.
