Friday Photo Challenge – nostalgia

I’m much enjoying these weekly challenges hosted on alternate weeks by either Amanda or Sandy because they force me to think about what’s in my photo archives and how I might re-use them.

This week it’s the turn of Amanda who reminds us:

The transient nature of life experiences are one reason why we take photographs. Like time travelling, photographs are a way to give life to the past, so we can imagine again that moment in time, in all its visual richness.

It’s at this point I’m wishing I’d made more progress with my project to scan all my old photos. It was one of my “Lockdown Projects” which I fondly (and mistakenly) thought I’d have plenty of time to do!

So, here goes:-

People  – my late parents (left) with their dearest friends (right) with whom they spent many a happy holiday. Here they are in Mougins in the early 2000s.

Places – A slightly longer list here. Firstly, San Sebastian, which we’ve visited every year since 2010, except for last year and this. We’ll definitely be going next year. My trips are already planned.

Paris, the City of Light, which we’ve visited regularly in recent years though my first visit was over 50 years ago, but sadly I never took any photos – no camera!

Australia about which I have waxed lyrical on endless occasions.


If you’ve enjoyed this post, why not join in the fun?

Friendly Friday

  1. My first visit to Paris was nearly 59 years ago, but — like you — I had no camera at that time, and no reason to take pictures. Same on my second, third, fourth, etc. visits. My earliest photos from Paris are from 2006.

  2. hehehe well I am younger me think, but when I first came to Paris in 1972, hence the name of my blog; I had no camera no money to buy one either. Many years and no pictures, first became a postcard collector 76 countries over 4K cards and then by joining a travel forum way back realise photos are important so got me a cheap kodak camera to start.. The rest is history. Thanks for the memories; Cheers

  4. Very beautiful photos again Sheree! Australia is a place I have always wanted to visit, but from here it’s such a long trip, I certainly wouldn’t do it for just a one week trip! Trips like that require more time, so it’s nice to travel with you and your photos!!😁😸🌞
