Twenty Years Back in Time

I just turned 22 and last weekend, I found some negatives of the photos my dad took when I turned 2 years old and my brother was just born.

This was a day near September 12th. My little brother was born the same day I turned 2 years old, so yes, we celebrate birthdays together every year. Now, let me show you the pictures taken by my dad.

My dad used to have an Olympus OM-10 that he carried everywhere we go. He took these photos using that camera and roll of Ilford film.

I used to get into my brother’s cradle (even though I already slept on a bed) just to be with him and cuddle him.

If I think a bit about this, my dad has always been a great inspiration for me when it comes to photography. I always remember him carrying his camera to every single place. He didn’t like people to over-pose, he still likes to photograph people acting naturally, laughing naturally. I can say that he still takes pictures of my brother and I when we go to the beach or have our birthday. As well as my dad, my mom also loves photography, but she’s more likely a digital girl. And now with my little brother growing up, she takes her camera everywhere they go.

As I’ve always been surrounded by photography, there was no way I could do else with my spare time.

It was nice to recover this negative and a bit of my childhood. I’m hoping to find some more!
