Pictures from the '70s: My Analogue, Beautiful Mom

7

My mother is really pretty, but she’s much prettier in analogue.

I used to live in my grandmother’s house till last month. I slept for six years in the room that my mother and my aunts used to sleep, so I had time to find a lot of treasures. Packaging is a great way to re-find them, and that’s how I found my analogue beautiful mom once again!

Look at her!!! Here you are some vintage photos from 1974 to 1979.

Here she is with one of my grandfather’s video cameras (he loved home video). Very analogue, isn’t it?

And please enjoy the kitty series!!! You have to see it till last photo, really fun!

Some portraits, look at the dresses… oh… amazing!

This black and white with some school friends in Granada (Spain), this one is funny, and it’s written in the back:

And here she is with the family:

Wasn’t she the prettiest lady in the world? I have to say that she still is a beautiful woman, really.

I love to open an old book, or an old box in my grandmother’s house and find pictures. Sometimes is fun, sometimes nostalgic, but always beautiful, because memories are better in analogue.

LOMO ON!

    Bite-Size Fiction: Spectrophobia

    “Mommy, no!” Angela squealed as she tried to push the camera away from her face. Thankfully, Anita managed to take the shot and hold the gadget tightly, keeping it from harm’s way.
