One day I was talking with my mother about things we have in common. I said we both shared having green eyes. On which she replied: "Generally speaking I really don't like green". Being a bit amazed hearing this for the first time, I asked her: "But what about green in nature, such as in landscapes?". She replied: "I don't care much for green in nature or landscapes either". Remembering my childhood growing up in the tropics being lush with opulent greens, I was totally flabbergasted by her statement. The next day my stepfather showed me his slide collection, it was indeed as green as I recalled. That moment I decided to remove all the green from the landscape-photos of my childhood, hoping my mother would like it as much as I did.
