I grew up looking at my parent’s photo albums, imagining their lives before me.
“I grew up looking at my parent’s family albums, imagining their lives before me. Trying to reconstruct the memories I didn’t have, imagining them over and over again in my mind. I felt these pictures, although connected with a particular history, triggered my own imagination.”
I’m not exactly sure where this old photo was taken, but that’s my mother standing on the far right and her sister standing on the far left. And I’m pretty sure my grandmother was the photographer because she always had creative ideas for “poses,” like asking the girls to make a design with their skirts.
Also, notice that my mom and her sister have matching dresses? My grandmother often made matching outfits for them. I bet she thought that if they had the same outfits, neither could say that the other’s outfit was better than their own! It was my grandmother’s way of keeping peace. ~shared by @srtruex
