Snowy Nostalgia for Lucky Snapping in 2013

Kathi is hosting Lucky Snapping this week and has chosen the theme of Nostalgia.  Here is what she says:  

"what it is that takes you back, or what will take you back when you look at this week's post in the future.....
  • it doesn't have to be a long lost memory, it may just be from last year;
  • maybe it will be a vintage postcard or a retro styled cup in a shop..
  • or a special little thing you do in your house that might become a traditon for your children in their future...
  • it might be just your news this week which fits the theme and you can put it down for posterity..
To make it easy we will use the term 'nostalgia' for my prompts..though as I said it may just be something happening now which people will enjoy reading or seeing in the future..
 
The term describes a sentimental longing for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations......In common, less clinical usage, nostalgia sometimes includes a general interest in past eras and their personalities and events, especially the "good old days," such as a sudden image, or remembrance of something from one's childhood. (thanks to Wikipaedia as ever).."

For January there is the additional theme of 'New Beginnings'  I'm not sure that I have met that one, although I suppose you could say that featuring toddlers at the beginning of their lives is a kind of new beginning!  It will have to do, because it was the snow we had on Sunday and the photo I took with my little compact camera (the DSLR arrived back from repair today-hurrah!) that reminded me of these older photos of my sons around the same age.  I hope Andrew will forgive me for putting him in a pink snowsuit, I recall that I got it second hand  and they both wore it to keep warm around the farm.

  1. I think it is a perfectly good offering, I just like that the nostalgia idea gets us digging out old stories and posts. And to compare Now and Then is kind of what I have done with our new babies x Thanks Janice x
