These beautiful photos
are by Japanese photographer Miyoko Ihara. Featured in many of her
photos are the artist's 88-year old grandmother, Misa, and Misa's ever
present feline companion, Fukumaru. Misa's beaming smile and the obvious
affection Misa and Fukumaru have for one another is heartwarming. Check
out more of Ihara's photos on her website. A great way to start off the week.
