I ♥ Faces - Week 33 - "Nostalgia"



This week it's been a tough one and I think I'll only just get this in in time, but it's nowhere near good enough to win, but hey - its the entering that counts right?! :D


This was taken on my very first Digital P&S -an Olympus Optical C22OZ - 2MP!! It was a pretty good camera at the time and it would still work had I not dropped it and broken the battery compartment door. Glad I did though, because it was the gateway to better things..!

Anyway...I digress! The photo:

I remember when my oldest four were my only four and they all fitted in a not-so-big bath together! Now they wouldn't dream of sharing a bath (well the two girls might, but they couldn't all the same!). Where did my babies go? :( The years roll by so quickly. In these days my eldest could barely read and write, now he has two blogs and shoots some pretty neat photographs himself - on a much better camera than I ever had my hands on at his age!

I've given the photo the kind of appearance I remember mine having when I was about his age now (12) taking pictures on a little 110 and paying for the developing from my pocket money. I was devoted to photos even way back then!! I remember them having rounded corners and a sort of yellowy look about them. They often disappointed me as I didn't have zoom and they weren't often the picture I had in my mind when I shot it. I still have those photos now and when I occasionally sift through my 'old photos box' (usually when we're moving house), I am only too glad of them now, to remind of times I would otherwise have long since forgotten.

When you are done looking here, don't forget to go and be 'nostalgic'
with so many other people over at I ♥ Faces this week.

I love it! Thanks for commenting about my photos. i actually goofed when i posted asking for help-- forgetting that the entry has to be SOOC. Blech. I still depend too heavily on good ol' PSE to get me out of many jams. I'll have to post a whole new set for y'all to vote on :)
