Over the years I have acquired quite a boat load of photos. Quite a few from my parents and the rest that I have taken over many years: memories tucked in envelopes, albums, and boxes hidden from view.
I have started the huge task of trying to organize them. It is a nightmare! Many are mixed up and shoved in this box or that spanning generations of over a hundred years.
As I go through them I have started to see relationships. Also there is usually a family story behind the photo that gets lost from one generation to another. I was teasing my son calling it the family ‘lore.
Anyway I have started to experiment with the idea of publishing some of these photos so they can be passed down from generation to generation. I have just started but I thought to start publishing a few here.
The yellow lined paper background was in memory of my dad.
Although the photos were color in the bath shots, I went for a retro look.
Again it was all about relationships.
I will probably publish a few more here as I get into the flow. I appreciate hearing about what you do with old family pictures.
