I decided I needed more photos in my dorm room because why not. I put this old piece of wood from the barn up and hung them.

Last vintage beach photo of the year- I promise!  My grandmother, rocking a white one piece and bathing cap, but the best part? - wearing a Mexican silver cuff on her left wrist.  I love wearing that cuff and its’ matching twin, but I admit I’ve never worn them to swim.  #vintagephoto #savefamilyphotos #vintage30s #vintageswimsuit Thanks, duvenay http://ift.tt/1nn17Di @savefamilyphotos

Nostalgia never goes out of style.

My Dad made thousands of photographs between 1979 and 1982 on Kodachrome film.

As I slowly scan and organize them, I realize that the simple, understated qualities of his photos are why I love them.

From the late 70s through the early 80s, my grandparents were building a house in Morro Bay on the central coast of California. So my parents spent a lot of time there with me and my brothers. My Dad took this particular photo of me in Clear Lake, California. I was playing at a friend’s house where we spent some time vacationing.

I remember catching tadpoles and frogs. I remember playing freely in the pond and creek that were on their property.

It is in these quiet, everyday photos that I see a common thread of family bonds and playful freedom. I think that’s something the whole human family appreciates and that’s why I’m in love with photography. ~shared by @kimsabbatino as part of her beautiful personal project @thedadproject

My Dad Ken Davis wearing his signature Pendleton jacket on a GE job site.

Although we share the same first name, his middle name was Gallusha and my Mom saved me from that…and from being called Junior!

My Dad, Ken Davis the Elder, was an engineer by training, but he came up through the GE apprentice program after a stint in the military and time in White Sands, New Mexico working on U2 rockets.

He could have worn a white shirt and tie and directed the ‘laborers,’ but he liked to get his hands dirty and show them “how to do it right!” He was a Top Man! ~shared by @stokrod
