Found (Part 2)

I'm a little lost trying to put words to these old photos of my dad we found. His childhood was (in ways) a tragic one, and I've always thought of it that way, but seeing these gives me a different view. It's interesting/funny/crazy to think of all the things we can still learn about our parents, even as adults.

A few shown above: my dad with his mom, camping trips to Tahquamenon Falls, and Christmas morning (circa 1940s!).

Beautiful photography, yours as well as the found photos. It is amazing to think about the lives our parents lead before we met them. Thanks for sharing.

These are such lovely photos! I love the vintage feel of old photos. It is very interesting to see how life was when our parents were our age. My parents have gone through things that I will never experience in my lifetime, and after hearing their stories of fleeing war and being ransacked by pirates, I have a new appreciation for them and their hard work to make sure my life is not like that.

Beautiful post Alli. :) Have a great weekend!

Those are priceless - hold on to those! There are very few pictures of my dad as a kid, he was the third out of four and they didn't take very many pictures at all. Still the ones that we've seen are quite valuable to me and my sister

Priceless indeed. These must be so precious to you...
It's hard for me to picture my parents when they were children. I yearn to see photos like this of them when they were young.

How incredible! Old family photos are certainly things to be treasured. You can know so much through a photo.

Yes, we assign an identity to our parents and grandparents. We forget that they were young too. They had that mix of ambition and anxiety that all young people wrestle with.
