Foresight

Julia Jackson by Julia Margaret Cameron, 1866, Ransom Center, U of Texas, Austin.

Julia Margaret Cameron began taking photos on her 48 birthday and when photography was still in its infancy. Not only was she among the first to use photography as an art, but she also copyrighted and kept excellent records of her photographs. Julia Jackson was her niece and namesake, and later Jackson would become the mother of the author Virginia Woolf.

It's really obvious that she is Virginia Wolf's mother. I want to thank you for your 'quiet' blog amidst so many that display way too much information.
