I really love photography. My fondness for b&w photos goes way back & when I find cool vintage b&w photos, I get even more excited. Today I was digging through boxes in our basement, on a mission. I have some of my mom's old photos- I had taken a stash of them when my parents moved. My plan was to frame & scan them eventually but haven't looked at them in years. Today however, I was looking for pictures of my grandma & my mom for a "generations of moms" post.
But while I was sifting though the old album I found (which incidentally stopped before her younger brother & sister were born), I was immediately taken by some of the photos. Of course I'm nostalgic because I'm related to these people. But I'm also really struck by the photography. Compositionally & artistically, I find them interesting & beautiful. I love the stories that they tell. Originally I was just looking for "mother" photos, but the photos with my grandpa & uncle are some of my favorites & I felt compelled to share.
This post is a Mother's Day surprise for my mom (because I know she reads this blog everyday) but I also think the photos are fun to look at even if you aren't related to me. It's a peek into history & the joys of everyday life- which all stem from motherhood.
Hope all of you mommas out there have a wonderful Mother's Day!
