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.
I not sure the exact year, but I do know it's in the 60's.
My mom is the one on the right, and she and the other gal were performing traditional Filipino dances. I don't know the name of them (I'll have to see if she even remembers), but I'm sure it was wonderful. It looks like that is my grandma on the far right, in the coral dress.
She looks so pretty! Is that a beehive I spy? :)
What a treasure to have this!
Your mother is so beautiful Alicia!
It's been ages since I last joined wahhhhh! Been busy, whew!
I think it is called pandango sa ilaw but I amyeb wrong hehehe... That's a precious pic!
Great pic for FF!
wow!! That's an amazing photo! I love it! :)
Oh! I remember I had also a picture wearing that costume but sad to say it was destroyed when we experience flood. It was taken during our high school dance also. This is a nice picture...
Oh! I love seeing the traditional costumes! How graceful they look!
Blessings & Aloha!
It may be a while, but I hope to catch up with everybody!
its great that you have a copy of this picture!! :D so vintage :D
and yes, this is a traditional folk dance in the Philippines :) and based on the costume, it should be a dance from Visayas region (?) what province is she from?
it's a wonderful old pic. brings back so much memories for sure -= for ur mom and her mom.
looking at her hand, it seems they are dancing "itik itik". Rose mentioned of "pandango sa ilaw" but i don't see any glass with candles in their hands or head. :) > just my thought though.
My entry is up but not so oldiesh. :)
happy weekend, Alicia!
I opened up the comments for the "FREE Furry Vengeance Movie Screening!" so please let me know which theater you would like. So sorry, I fell asleep before seeing your comment in my other post.
Your Mom looks beautiful btw!
What a great photo to have, you should find out more about those dances.
What a fun picture! So vintage!
what a great memory for you to have
I love all the women's hairstyles in this picture! Sometimes I wish we women still put that much work into our hair and then I realize that half the time I can't even find the time to comb my hair, let alone put it in a beehive, lol :)
Your mother is beautiful!
What a great memory to share!!
I'll bet that was so cool to see. Beautiful dresses.
Awesome - I love it!!!
Oh the hairdo! My mom showed me pictures of her hairdos back in the days. I think they're so beautiful but she says that it took a long time to style it everyday.
I love it I love the hair =)
What a fun meme! I'll have to link up next week! I love old pictures.

Look at those dresses! How great are they! Its so cool to see those old pictures!
That is a great photo!
It just AMAZES me how many photos you guys took back in the day! Totally impressed!
Ummm... reminds me of my hubby's photos when he was a kid and part of a community performance troupe.
Was she dancing the "itik-itik" ? It looks like it from the position of her hands. Was that a school program (maybe "Linggo Ng Wika)?
Such a nice memorable photo of your mother.
How cool is that? What awesome ladies they are :)
Great picture! I love seeing photos of my parents. My mom used to be a magician's assistant. I don't think she has any pictures though.
Oh my goodness! How cute is that! Such great old photos to treasure!
Oh this is so awesome. My hubby´s family does the Tilikling (spelling??). What a beautiful dress and hair your mom had!
oh I posted Friday and everything, but didn´t link up. bummer. I totally thought I did.
Had a bitter sweet weekend with having to get rid of our dog.
Hope to have a good post tomorrow. Dani Joy
