Classic Mother/daughter flash memoir spinster

This story is about my mother and me. It's flash memoir, not fiction, though of course all memoir is filtered through time and likely has fictional elements. It's an old story. I'm still technically a spinster, but I'm also in a committed relationship. The picture is of my mother at the age of 23. My mother loved this story. I never showed it to my father.

I love steam trains and out walking in Worcestershire beside the River Severn heard a steam train on the Severn Valley Railway. It was spring, the trees had burst into life and in a small clearing, the sun shone through the tree canopy. The train approached and I quickly took this shot. It took me straight back to my childhood when steam ruled. just look at the colours of engine and coaches fitting perfectly with the colours of spring!

I took this star trail at Mabini, Batangas, Philippines way back in 2015. It was the first time I took this kind of star trail utilizing the position of the North Star (Polaris) at the sky, which seems to produce circular path of stars because the Earth rotates with Polaris right above the rotational axis.
