Photobombing is NOT new. Plus fashion from the past.

You think photobombing is new?

Not new at all.  I could not help laughing as I stumbled across this picture from the past.  Big sister is talking on what?  The old style phone, probably rotary, that had a special little sitting place just for phone visiting.  The books are phone books.  We could look up numbers and dialing took so long we really needed a place to sit down and wait.  

Big sis's fashion is interesting too.  Remember the puffy short sleeves with long sleeves underneath.  The pants had to be long enough to drag the ground and this sis's legs were long, she was thin, and the bought pants didn't fit so lots of moms, including this one, had to make the pants.  And yes, long hair was a must back then but evidently ironing out the curl was not yet a must.  

Things have changed.  That carpet covered up beautiful hardwood flooring but carpet was more fashionable at the time.  This house is now on the market for sale with lots of fashionable changes, including going back to hardwood.  It is listed on MLS with Lena Rath as the listing agent, MLS #18026303.  Going back to see how it "used to be" was very interesting and enjoyable.

That's what I love about photography.  It captures moments in time that we can't get back!

I thought the bomb might be you!

Bet there are bell bottoms at the end of those pants.

Today the fad is facetime and there's no telling who or what will show up in a picture but not for long.

Myrl, you are so right.  And I like the kind that you dig out of old desk drawers instead of the ones on the computer.

Don, those are my kids.  It is so much fun to go back through all the old pictures of family.  The ones on line with phones and computers will never be as precious!

Hi Barbara,
I totally enjoy going back through old photos.  Nothing like a blast from the past to put a smile on my face.

Carol, it is my favorite way to spend holidays.  Pull out the old photos and look through them another time.  The one above really made me smile.  Thanks for commenting.
