Nostalgia


  1. Mom and her little sister dressed like dolls in matching dresses, shoes and little bags; all their clothes were tailor made and designed.
  2. Mom goes out with her big sister to the park for a walk. Mom said her big sister was the most beautiful girl in the neighbourhood, and I can certainly see why.
  3. Mom standing next the family car, hers was one of the few families in Singapore who could afford a car at the time.

One of my favourite things to do back in Singapore at my parents house, is to look at mom's old photographs. They tell me a story, and hint at little secrets of lives led a long time ago.

What do your old photographs tell you?

Herm... my old photos?
They tell me that I was fat, ugly, grumpy, unhappy with life, and just an abnormality. I hated cameras.

Old photos to me tell me life was simplier and we didn't take things for granted, with all the modern technology we have these days to do everything for us.

Wow, this is such a beautiful photographs of your mother! I remember looking back at my mothers old photographs she also wore little cute dresses similar to your mums only my mum was about 6 years old in her photo. I also remember finding a picture of my great granddad who is French, although it was in black & white you can tell how pale he looked and that he had bright coloured eyes. It's funny how distinctive we all look even without colour. I love old photos they tell so much of a story in each one even without colour you can tell what the colour might have been. Ah, this post is very lovely! xx
