A Long Long Time Ago
My father was always taking photos of the family when we were growing up. Unfortunately all the negatives disappeared when the old homestead was sold and only some of the old photos remain. This photo was his favorite. A family story tells of him actually entering this image in a local photo competition and being disqualified because it was considered a posed photo. However, I can assure you that I was not posing when he pressed the shutter back in 1951.

You seem to be watching the camera with great interest. I'm sure your dad would very much enjoy your photo blog. So many advances in technology have been made. I always think how my mother would have enjoyed the internet.
