Family Photographs

     I'm a lover of photography, whether it has anything to do with me or not. With every photo comes a memory or a thought. Photos bring some kind of emotion. I can thumb through others photos and it brings me joy. Don't ask me why or how because I really don't understand it myself. Photos fascinate me. Doesn't matter if it is of people, buildings, nature, etc.

My favorite photos are of my family. Even the family I never knew, didn't know for long, or have yet to meet in person. I treasure the photo above of my Grandmama and Grandaddy. It's so neat to be able to see what they looked like when they were much younger since I never saw them at that age.

I have come across many old photos of siblings of grandparents or even photos of great grandparents and their siblings. Sometimes these photographs show what places looked like back when they were young... or alive. My Daddy let me have quite a few old photos he got when my Grandma died. I'd like to get more of them so I can scan those and possibly give others the ability to save them and have them for their families.

I am currently gathering items to organize the photos I have so that they can be scanned and shared with my family. I'm really hoping that once I start sharing photos, others will start sharing some of the photos they have so I can add them to my "photo collection".

The interesting part will happen when I start printing off all of my photos that are on my computer so that my children are able to look back on their childhood memories; just like I am able to do.

Do you have old photographs that you treasure?
