I love old photos. There's a feeling of mystery to it. The joy, rawness, and melancholy of memories it can bring to a person. I also love how everything looks simple back then, - before photoshop and dslr came to scene. I love the fashion and the hair of course. I love how women wear dresses and how men look so draper in their outfits. And personally, i especially love looking through some old photographs of me and my brother together with my cousins. It was so fun. We actually "play". The physical kind. We run, jump and climb trees and spend the weekend with our whole clan on the farm. We came from a family of farmers, so picking watermelon and mud bath is just another field of game for us. Right now we all live far away from each other.So looking at our photos brings us back together again. Suddenly i remember those nights of playing hide and seek, inventing horror stories to tell and sometimes salt fight when we can't seem to settle our quarrels. Kids uh!
This morning all of my childhood memories came rushing back at me when i visited A Cup Of Jo and discovered Irina Werning's Site and her Back To The Future Project where she invite people to reenact their childhood photos. Amazing right?
Now back to me again. Id very much love to reenact this photo of me and my brother at the stairs of my late great grandmother's house. I miss him soooo much. And I miss my Lola Cela. Suddenly I miss everything before.
