A post about photos, grandparents and love

I would like to share with you some interesting links that I’ve come across this week. They kind of led me to an idea for a photo project. Yes, I still have those, even though I don’t put them into practice as often as I did. But I’m not going to mention anything this time; maybe the secret of it all will keep me going. :D

First off, a collection of famous photographers’ portraits with their most famous images. It was nice to see a face put to the person behind the lens. Surprisingly (or not), I think most of them are men. You can read the article over here, in case you missed it on social media.

If you were to pose with one of your best photos (according to you), which would you choose? I’d go for this one.

There are lots of portraits that I enjoyed taking, but somehow this manages to top them all. I think it’s the sharpness and sincerity of it that makes it my favorite. Even more cause it’s taken with my grandpa’s old Kiev. So, if someone ever does a project about me, ask me about this picture.

Talking about grandparents, a pair of mine celebrated 52 years of marriage at the beginning of this week. In light of this, I’m sharing with you this link over here. Very inspiring read. The problem with “most people in the first bloom of love” is that we believe all the wrong things about marriage. These people went through it and they know a thing or two about love.

Also, at the beginning of this week, my other grandma turned 79. She was married to grandpa for longer than my other grandparents. But somehow, I think I like her marriage more. Must be because of the man that my grandpa used to be. She must miss him greatly. The person she loved is no longer in this world.

Hope you have a peaceful Sunday, wherever you are and whoever you love and (not) have by your side.

    1. Hello, Ivan. Thanks for stopping by!

      I honestly do not remember the type of film I used; it might have been an expired one, I remember being very impressed with the results.

Have your say!
