Mother’s Day’s In May
Mother’s Day brings families together. It’s a great day to share stories and hang out. We talked today about many and varied things, one of the subjects being film and the good old days of manual cameras. Graeme, my wife’s step father, has a bunch of old slides that he keeps in a plastic bag and we talked of the days when film was a standard medium used in all photographic equipment. His photos were quite good. Well composed and exposed and of his travels as a young man around Australia. His memories of these events, etched in his mind, and also recorded in the physical form of 35mm transparency film. It was great to hear his enthusiasm for the medium and his wanting to reconnect with the art form.
We had three generations of the girls in the house as well today and shared an amazing meal, home cooked by the elder of the three, as well as a few games of cards and some mucking around with the grom’s. It was great to hang out and watch the kids enjoy their grandparent’s and vice versa.
