This week's theme at I ❤ Faces is Nostalgia. Angie and Amy came up with great ideas for how to capture a photo that makes you nostalgic but the only thing I can think of these days are memories of my grandpa...
Our family is huge and everyone played an important role during the days following my grandpa's death and preceding his memorial and funeral. My job was to make a DVD of his life in pictures. I divided it into four chapters: "biography" (including pictures from age 1-81), "husband", "father", and "grandpa".
Without a doubt, we had the most pictures in the "grandpa" chapter. Of course, one reason could be because of the advent of digital cameras but I think it is mainly because he was such a wonderful, hands-on grandpa, that there were plenty of opportunities to take pictures of him playing with his grandkids. And what great pictures we have of him! The old ones are my favorite because of their retro coloring and faded tones--especially this one...
This is a circa-1986 picture of me*, the twin, & my grandpa making cookies.
Ahh! Talk about nostalgia!
I miss that man, my grandpa and my friend.
I highly encourage you to check out other Nostalgic entries at I ❤ Faces! You never know--maybe something you see will make you nostalgic, too!
