old family photographs

I absolutely adore old family photographs. I have started collecting some and my mom has been scanning some in too, so we both have copies. There is something quite powerful about a physical photograph. Being able to hold that second in time forever gives you a physical record of your memories, or of people you never even met. I could go on and on about the power of a physical photograph, but I'll save that for another day. Here are a few old family pictures.
