The Weekly Photo Challenge called my name again. Since I don’t blog every day, and I already had blogs scheduled, I’m posting it two days before the next challenge.
I have three photos hanging over my fireplace mantel. When I first put them there, I loved the contrast between the two old photos and the new photo. I loved that you could see the difference in generations, in eras, and yet still see the similarity.
Little did I realize how fast time would fly, and now the middle photo is no longer new either, but old as well. They are all nostalgic now.
From left to right on my mantel, this one is first, my paternal grandparents, Jo & Jim, aka Josephine and James. I don’t know what year they married, but knowing the year my dad was born, it’s likely late 1930’s.
In the middle is the “new” photo, Gary and Lori’s wedding, aka, Gary & Lori. In case you couldn’t tell by the veiled hat, it took place in the mid 1980’s. As you can see, I was only nine years old when I married.
To the far right of the mantel are my maternal grandparents, Lee & Pat, aka, Levia & Pasqual. Again, it’s likely in the late 1930’s.
Aside from the fact that they are in different eras with different fashions, can you tell that there is something different about one of them? One of these things is not like the other.
It’s unfortunate that I won’t have another generation’s photos to add to the wall, but these pictures bring back warm nostalgic memories of my beloved grandparents. If your at all curious about why there will not be another generation of photos on my wall, I’ll be posting a little something about it on my blog on Monday.
