I've been scanning a lot of my father's negatives, and thought I'd share some of the results with you. I've said it before: Thank heavens for my dad and his fine cameras. Most people my age don't have family photographs like this.
My cousin Terry (the wonderful gardener who died in 2008) and her handsome father, Eddie.
Me, learning to walk (with a little help and cheering on from my parents). The woman facing away from the camera is our lovely cousin Ruth. The picture was taken at her home.
My mom. I've posted more glamorous shots of her on this blog, but she loved to laugh and could be very funny.
I've also mentioned my uber-creative cousin Barbara, who paints, sews, and has designed toys. Here she is being creative with her mother's clothespins. Her dad was overseas, fighting WWII, and those are diapers on the line, folks.
My mom and I are on the right, with her sister Elsie and Elsie's daughter Barbara on the left.
Like I said, most people don't have family photographs like this.
