My Scrapbook


  1. That really worked well. I found myself staring at all aspects of it with fascination. It is like turning out an old hidden drawer and looking at the contents.


    • Thank you very much.

      It is exactly what I tried to capture.

      In 2004 when we visited South-Africa my father gave me a shoe-box filled with wonderful treasures and until then I hadn’t even realized he had. I literally flew with the box on my lap.
      When I got to Canada I immediately started sorting and put everything in albums, but I should have spread everything on a table and taken photographs.


    • We have come a long way in a century.
      That is so true and to think there are people who have lived that long.
      I often wonder what our ancestors would think of today, especially cameras and photos.


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
