I was sorting through a big old box of random photos collected by various family members over the last century. There are grainy black and white shots that help us estimate dates, shots with people dressed in funny clothes.. shots of long gone babies and proud parents... and it struck me that my kids, grandkids,etc will never get this chance.

"Possibly more than 80% of all amateur images taken in the first decade of this century will not exist by 2050"

and it's the 'amateur' images that are about life.. it's those images that we can take an honest look into the past. There's little environmental planning, very little photo manipulation.. they are just real and honest moments in time.

Maybe it's the dust from this old box, maybe it's the musty smell, but I have something in my eye...
