Years May Go By

I just love this photo of my grandmother (standing on the left) from the 1930's; maybe it is the cotton dresses or the women's fresh faces, or maybe it's the humble home and the flowers on the window sill. It draws me in.    Her name was Beatrice!
I have been sorting and scanning old family photographs.  I intend to scan all of our family photos to create digital copies for everyone (brothers, sisters, cousins & aunts, uncles....) so I better start.   It really is alot more time-consuming than I first imagined.  
But these pictures really take me places....right out of this time zone and into another realm.  It must be the flashes of family resemblances that I see in so many of the faces - making the pictures all seem so familiar.  
And easy to imagine living in another decade or century.

Beautiful and introspective

Oh thanks Shelley! But I actually wanted to go 'there', even if only for an afternoon. I love old family photos, it's a kind of time travel! It can be a bit trippy.
