This week we are to capture a photo that takes us back to our childhood. Since my dad was such a saver I have many things I could photograph, such as the ceramic pots and pitchers I made in high school art class, or the Disney lunch pail I used while in grade school, or a tiny tea set my sisters and I enjoyed with Pepsi M&M's and cookies, and so many more.
But the thing that makes me reminisce about my childhood is this....
Dad kept probably close to 100 of these reel-to-reel and 8mm movies. I remember we would break out the projector and the screen when company came to visit. We only had three TVchannels and this was something different and fun. Plus, mom would always make a large bowl of popcorn for us.
I remember the sound of the film passing through the projector, and I can still recall the musty smell of the large screen, both of which my dad still has.
I loved watching these old movies, especially the ones of my mom and dad when they were a young couple living on the east coast. They are even more special now since mom passed away.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a chance to fondly reminisce about your own childhood.
