Keeping My Father’s Memory Alive Through Vintage Family Pictures
My father, Antoine, and his brother Georges with his new wife Camille “Mimi,” in Belgium just after WWII.
They were known among friends and family as the three musketeers; they were inseparable and always laughing together.
In this photo, my father had attempted to take a portrait of the three of them using his Agfa camera and a timer several times. After more attempts than any of them cared to admit to, this one made the final cut.
My uncle Georges played it oh-so-cool, and my father tried to keep a straight face, but laughed while trying to shush his partners in crime.
I cherish this moment captured in good old fashion 35 mm film, the story behind the moment, and of course my dear father who I still miss terribly after all these years of not hearing his infectious laughter. ~shared by @lossidesigns
