Vintage Photograph - Going Back In Time




I've been away from my blogs for a long time now and enjoying the Instagram experience instead.

But it is time to blog again. Thought I would change the format of my blog - share my instagram posts and weave them into themes.

I have changed the way I post on instagram by adding a quote that I hope will provide inspiration to others. So will follow the same here.

Sharing a photo of my great grandmother, my grandmother and my great grandfather. Taken in Cairo circa 1910-1915.

Photography for me is not about taking the perfect picture, it's about capturing a moment in time that you can remember forever.

While I had the pleasure of meeting my great grandmother, I did not get to meet my great grandfather but this picture brings him to life for me and brings back fond memories of my great grandmother and grandmother.

"Looking at my own prom photograph reminds me of how significant that moment was - and how fleeting life is." ~ Mary Ellen Mark

  1. Capturing a moment that you will cherish forever! Yes, that is what photography should be all about. Not showing off like it happens on social media these days.

  2. Clicking candid pictures brings more joy than clicking perfect pictures.
    I am sorry, Suzy, but the picture you have shared, refuses to load, so I couldn't view it. :(
