To the left in this old photo you can see my late grandad, who would have been over 100 years old now if he had still been alive. Anyway, at that TIME, having a photograph taken was a big event! He told me he was scared stiff (look at his hand and face) because the photographer who was hiding under under a "blanket" behind this huge camera box, said that "he" was going to be sent to America..... My grandad didn't realize that it was not him, but the photo that was off to relatives in the USA....
Today kids have got thousands of photos/documentations of nearly everything that they do.....
TIMES HAVE CHANGED!
A wonderful memento, I have to ask my mom if she has something like this of our elders.
How photography has changes. Lovely image.
Beautiful photograph and a lovely story. He looks terrified!
Super take for theme day, Gunn. I got a kick out of seeing how uncomfortable your grandfather's expression was. I'm sure he would have felt right at home if you had been photographing him :-).
I love the image and your reflection about it.
what a great post!
awesome photo. very nice for theme day. I hope all is well
A funny story! Times certainly have changed. :)
Very nice photo and story !
Wonderful shot and story!!! We have many old photos...some of my grandmother and uncle crossing the ocean to come to America...I'm grateful that my parents kept so many photos...
Fantastic time post Gunn.
Wonderful take on the subject of time. Yes, the times have changed a LOT!
Fun to see a piece of TIME from another era! Your Bestefar did look afraid in the photo...
Yes, times have changed. Sometimes for the better, maybe (health care?), and sometimes not. I think times were tough when your grandpa was a boy. He would have been about the same age as my dad - a bit younger, perhaps.
Excellent photo-within-a-photo. The ultra-modern keyboard intensifies the sense of history. Brilliant.
What a brilliant idea to use this photo in terms of time. Clever you and a lovely old photo.
Minner meg om : "Du smiler mot meg fra et falmet bilde. En sonett-krans – dikt (1994) av Margareth Skjelbred (og fotografier av Morten Krogvold) En nydelig bok !
A fine story and it's always great to see old family photos every now and then.
A reminder to us all how photography may have changed but the family portrait hasn't.
What a lovely photo for theme day! I remember when cellphones exist and now everyone takes pictures and posts them on their blog with them...times really have changed! ;-)
What a sweet story.
