Over the weekend I finally went through an old suitcase of my grandmothers'. Inside were dozens upon dozens of old and uncared for negatives. Some showed my mother as a child, some of people no one remembers.
Tucked away in a yellowed envelope was a poorly folded roll of 35mm film from the beginning of my grandparents relationship in the early 1950's.
I have always felt that connecting with the past is important, and seeing these images of a woman that I was so close to, and love so much makes me feel that much closer to her.
