old family photos

Sunday, June 12, 2011
i’m a huge fan of old photos - i’ve spent odd hours here and there sorting through boxes of them at junk shops. however, they’re about a hundred times more meaningful when the photo is of someone you actually know. (although there is something to be said about the mystique of a stranger).

these three photos are of my grandmother in her early 20s. it’s especially nice to look at them now, as she’s more than 90 years old and seems to drift further away from herself everyday. the middle picture is my favorite - she’s 22 years old and on her honeymoon.
