Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

09 Jul

I love this little photograph taken around 1920 and hand-coloured by the photographer. It’s of my lovely Mum and her little brother.

    Old family photos are priceless. Your camera – and the person behind it, all-important factor – make beautiful music together. I have a pic I’ll use in a post soon, of me and my mom. I looked so much like her at age 38 that my daughter asked, “Where were we when this was taken? And how come my hair isn’t curly?” When I told her I was the little girl, she said, “Wow, you look so much like Grandma… keep looking like her, OK?” Sweetest thing she said to me that whole week.

    Thanks for this memory… Excellent presentation as always! Amy

      What a lovely, to-be-treasured thing for your daughter to say! And thank you too for your lovely comment about my photos.

      I shall look forward to seeing your photo -and you’ve stirred me up to maybe do that too.

      All the best to you, Sally πŸ™‚

    beautiful–no wonder you love it so much — your mom looks very “modern” in it

    I noticed the hair bow. I remembering wearing them and having a drawer full. All different colors and nicely pressed.

      Lovely isn’t it. My hair was always too curly for bows but I managed to get them into my girls’ hair! πŸ™‚

    I’m a fan of hand-colored photography, and this one is especially nice Sally. It fits the nostalgic theme perfectly! And I love that frame!

    I love old family photos. πŸ™‚ I get a kick out of matching up the various generations at the same age and seeing how much people really do look alike.
