Day Eighty-Eight: Vintage | Old | Classic
My grandparents documented their lives! I am so grateful for that too. They kept their albums all nice and labeled from their start back in 1959. I love these old classic photos. And to see the vintage boats, cars, scooters, and motorcycles that they owned was so cool! This is why I do what I do - photos are all we are left with sometimes. Grandma and Grandpa (the big photo is their wedding photo) both passed in 2011 and I miss them everyday. It's so neat to see what their life looked like long before I was even thought of. I only wish they were here to tell me the stories behind these images and what they were doing and who some of the people are in relation to me.
This is the second time I have taken on this challenge. I completed a 365 in 2014 - took 2015 off and decided that this year I wanted to do another challenge. I am part of an amazing group of talented photographers who post an image from an interpretation of a prompt that we receive every day in our e-mail. It's so neat to see how differently a person perceives a simple word or concept and how they translate that into a photograph. I am kicking myself that I didn't do a challenge in 2015 so this is me getting back into doing something I enjoy so very much!
