It was my first time out west so you can imagine how fascinated I was with the beautiful desert landscape in the area. Of course, as far as I am concerned, no trip can be experienced without involving geographical and family history. On our last day there, my husband’s sister generously shared her family photo album with precious photos of past generations. I knew my time was limited and I did not want to pass up the opportunity to document this treasure.
Since, I do not have a ‘Flip-Pal’, I used the next best thing, my handy IPhone.
I photographed close to 200 photos, front and the back of the photo for identification.
As for the photos that were unidentified, I was able to ask my Mother-in-Law about them. It was a blessing to participate with her as she recounted some wonderful memories of her life.
As I always say... there's always a way. Although, it may not have been the most perfect, technique, as my husband, who is a professional photographer hinted. I was at least able to accomplish documenting the photos and spend memorable time with family.
As a result, I now have a photo to add for those family members as well as fond memories spent hearing about days gone by.
Now, on to setting time to chronicle all those treasures....
