ghosts from the past

Everything often doesn't turn out the way you expect it to. Everyone knows this in theory, but things still manage to always catch us by surprise. A few weeks ago, my mom found an old film camera that she got when she graduated from high school. It had a roll of film with about ten pictures taken. We had no idea how old they were, so I used up the rest of the film and then went to get it developed. Only a few of the pictures turned out, unfortunately, but it was kind of like seeing ghosts. There's my sister, back when she had bangs, and there's my old neighbor, who's probably as tall as me now. These must be a good four or five years old. It's so strange to see them turn up like that, and yet so interesting too. I love how photography can bring back memories like that.

  2. I love the retro, vintage feel to the photographs. It's like a blast from the past.
