These snippets of life are treasured moments of my ancestors and they mean the world to me.
Many of the pictures in my collection are far from perfect.
During my learning curve I often took blurry, off-center, red-eye shots. Some of them are so terrible they make me laugh out loud.
During my ancestors’ learning curve, outdoor pictures often include the photographer’s shadow. The shadow forms all have the same stance; arms down, elbows out, head bent.
So when I saw this picture of my uncle posing with his new camera, it made me smile.
