1960s style in family photos
After reading Alessa's post (at farbenfreude.blogspot.com - I can't do links at the moment. My blogger interface is only showing half the usual buttons) with her photos of her family, I was inspired to respond with a few of my own. Mostly they are of my mum and my sister. As the eldest by a good few years there are lots of pics of my sister in the collection. My favourite is her red trousers summer outfit. I would like a pair of red trousers like that myself. I'd also like my mum's monochrome beach outfit in the top photo.
These pictures were all slides, as my parents had a slide camera as a wedding present. The slides cover a period of about 6 years. Then I guess my dad got a film camera as the "normal" photo albums strart and the slides end. A few years ago I began getting my dad's slides put into digital format. I started printing them into book format for my dad when he was ill with dementia.
Oh and I am in one of these photis...guess which one? Clue: my love of red shoes started early.
