Over time, I've began another secret love affair -with photography. I love photos. I love recording my personal piece of history. Whether I take a picture of the Eiffel Tower, or of a particularly interesting scene during the course of a day, it serves to remind me of where I was, how I thought, and what interests I had at the time. They also serve to help create a bond to people who's I've never met, but whose existence allowed me to be here today. As the saying goes, "a pictures really does say a thousand words."
My father recently found some old family photos I had never seen before. It was great to see where I came from starting with an amazing photo of my great-grandfather and my great-great grandfather! Never got to meet these gentlemen, but what a crazy find this was!
My paternal great grandmother (Caridad). Who I did get to meet and know until she passes away when I was a teenager.
Maternal Great Grandmother (Delores) holding my dad. I did get to meet her when I was an infant.
and these 2 cuties who grew up to bring me into this world: My dad (Oscar)
Ok bored you enough with my trip down memory lane. Have you had a moment in time that was perfectly captured by film or by a song?
