This weekend I was down at a family reunion. Part of the spirt of the weekend was a celebration of my grandparents lives (my mothers’ parents). My grandmother passed away last year and her 4 daughters and 2 sons and their extended families had not had a chance to get together since then to really hug it out and remember them in the right way.
One night everyone sat around the dining room table and looked through the old photos from Phyllis’ collection of memories. Some of the photographs were absolutely beautiful black and white images that captured a time period in the 20s and 30s. Photography was still a developing industry and I was amazed at the beauty and sharpness in some of the shots. I took photos of my favorites with my new iPhone. The new camera on the phone actually takes great pictures close up. It seemed beautifully ironic.
This image blew me away. That’s my grandmother on her left.
