Photographer Turns his 91-Year Old Grandma into a Superhero to Cheer Her Up
A few years ago photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. So to cheer her up, and put a spark back into her life, he turned her into a superhero! He took a series of awesome photographs of her wearing costumes in unusual superhero type posses. "Grandma reluctantly agreed, but once they got rolling, she couldn't stop smiling." Frederika isn't only a superhero in these photos, but she was a real hero during World War II. Frederika was born in Budapest 20 years before World War II. These photos are great, and they definitely put a smile on my face. Related:  plain awesome
