Challenge = to use photos from 5 or more years ago
I chose to only use one photo from more than 5 years ago,
apart from sentimental value, I thought it was worth telling the story behind it.....
When I was a little girl, I remember a
beautiful etched glass photo frame with
a photo of me at five years, sitting crossed
legged talking on an old fashioned telephone.
It took pride of place on a telephone table
at my Grandmothers house.
Many years later my mother inherited it
and it sat inside a glass cabinet in our
lounge room. I loved that photo frame!!
After my dad passed away in 1999, my
mum sold our family home. Her two
storey five bedroom home was too much
for her to look after so she moved to a smaller
unit. During the packing up she gave me
the etched photo frame to keep.
Putting it up on a shelf in my own home,
I dropped it and shattered the glass frame…….
I was devastated, that frame was so beautiful!!
I started to sweep up the glass and on taking
the photo of me out of the frame, I discovered
another photo hidden behind my photo in
the frame, obviously my photo had been
placed over the top by my Grandmother.
Amazing!! It was an old sepia photograph
taken of my Grandmother ‘Annie Amelia
Chalk, as a little girl standing next to my
Great Grandmother ‘Henrietta Lucy Taylor’.
This is the only family photo we have of
my grandmother as a little girl and the only
photo in existence of my Grandmother.
What a find……
This photo is Timeless!!
