FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to sign in to MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

1966

I know this picture is not the greatest quality, but I love it for the memory.

This is my parents wedding reception.

They divorced in 1979, but I'm thankful that I have so many pictures prior to that.

I love looking through my parents' wedding pictures, too. I remember asking them why they didn't choose me for their flower girl. :)

That is such a sweet photo!!! "Vintage" wedding photos are the best!

Carin said...

Oh what a wondeful picture! Can you imagine the joy of the day. What a special picture to have.

Sorry I haven't been doing the Flashback. My mom is frustrated I've been missing it. But my dumb OLD scanner won't go with Windows 7, grrrrrrr. I hope to get back with the Flashbacks soon!

Oh! my wedding also was in 1967 so they had one year ahead of mine. I am reminded to post it also next time.

Hey Alicia,

That is a very precious pic to have and hold on to as a memory.

I was just looking through my parents wedding pic the other day and it does bring a smile to your face knowing of a time where their love was so new & strong.

btw/ Another Friday is going by and my scanner is def a goner :( But I'm telling you girl as soon as I get it hooked up I'll be back on Fri Photo FB...

Much Luv,
Karen

I love having my parent's wedding picture, too. It is such a beautiful memory to have. Both of my parents are gone now, so it is even more special.

I remember looking at my parents wedding photos as a kid and thinking my mom was a beautiful "princess".

I really enjoy Friday Photo Flashback, seeing everyone's photos and their narratives of their photos.

Blessings & Aloha!
(So glad to have gotten my post together to link up with you here!)
Now...to get ready for work! It will be late before I make it around to the others.

i remember looking through my parents album all the time as a little girl. i think because i knew i was in my mom's belly then. i don't know. but it was always fun to look at. and now, it makes me thankful for my wedding being done how it 'should've' been. great picture. and memories.

mother goose said...

i love the feel of film photography and how it ages with time! It's so hard to duplicate that look in photoshop! beautiful.

Lorrie said...

What a beautiful photo...I FINALLY remembered Flashback! I'm so happy. Have a great day!

Momisodes said...

What a treasure.

The photo reminds me of those flashes of memory from childhood.

Kelli @ RTSM said...

That is such a beautiful picture! I love how old it is...now people edit pictures to make them look just like that:)

That IS a treasure, Alicia! My parents were divorced, too, and I couldn't believe when I came across a picture with both of them in the same room!! ;) Have a great weekend ~ ♥

Those memories are great, even though you weren't there, you almost feel like you were. Glad you have lots of those types of pics.
It's a beautiful scene:)

Amanda said...

SO sweet!! Love that vintage look... and that cake is awesome! :)

Sorry to hear that their marriage ended in divorce but at least you have that memory captured in a photo!

This is precious.

I wish I had photos like these of the 'then days'

Alicia said...

This is an awesome idea! I would love to join you but don't have a scanner. But I'm hoping to upgrade my computer with my tax refund and do my part to help the economy. Maybe I'll add scanner to my wish list cause I have tons of older photos, pre-digital photos. I love the photo of your parents.

homeschoolceo said...

It's a beautiful picture! I have a photo of my parents when they were dating that I hold dear for the same reason. My sister had a great wedding photo of them that I really need to get a copy of.

Shelle said...
