My vintage look at summer for Summer Stock Sunday, hosted by Robin at Around the Island.
My thoughts for this year's Summer Stock Sunday center around the timelessness of summer. More than likely because I'm a history lover who writes historicals and I'm constantly researching the past. What strikes me again and again is: the more things change, the more they stay the same.
Take these two shots of my Mom, my sister and me.
Not only are they taken on a merry-go-round at the fair, but we're in the exact same set-up in both photos.
Me, Mom, Michelle. Late 60's
Me, Mom, Michelle. Early 80's.
Round and round, full circle.
Dimple says Amazing! I wonder if the photographer was the same, too!
Julia's note: Yes - it was my dad.
Jennifer Leeland says I love these. It's like time travel. I feel the same way when I look at my husband's old pictures of him and his family at Shanty Creek side by side with ours.
It's like double vision.
Louise says Those are some great pics, Julia. So was it a coincidence or did you remember the 60'es pix when the 80'es pix was taken?
Julia's note: No, it was totally coincidence that lined us up again like that.
