Joe T. Wilson Ball

This is a photo of Joe T. Wilson Ball - my maternal great grandmother (my mother's mother's mother). I thought it was an interesting photo, I particularly love how Joe T. is framed by the tree and its shadow.

update from my mom: "I love this picture, too, it's very atmospheric. It was taken in Kansas right after she married my grandfather. I think she was lonely there and she didn't like how flat Kansas was and how the wind blew all the time and blew dust into every crack and cranny in her house. She's standing behind the wall because she is pregnant and in the 20's one didn't advertise when they were "in the family way". Mom"
