I ♥ Faces- "Nostalgia"



This week's I ♥ Faces theme was the first one that I really had to think about. All of the other times I've entered, I've known right away which photo I wanted to use. But this week, I had to really think hard. After much consideration, I chose this one of my grandfather's hands holding one of my old cameras. I know I won't win, because there isn't a face. But I absolutely love this photo and it just brings me back to when I was a child... all of the things my Gramps used to do with me, and all of the things he taught me to do. And then the camera he's holding... it's one we found together at an antique show. When I look at this photo, I am taken back to so many different things, that I couldn't help but enter it, even though I know there is no face in the photo... but I ♥ the face that belongs to these hands... and every time I see this photo... that face appears in my mind.

It's funny how one captured moment in time can bring the memories rushing back. Such a sweet entry!
