Photo Friday


On Thank God it's Friday, the challenge is to use a photo in some art. I chose this ATC I made last year (2007) sometime - it is still one of my favorites, and I cannot bear to part with it.
The girl in the photo is my mother - she was about 2 years old, so it was taken around 1948 or so. My grandfather snapped the photo with his old Brownie camera - he loved that thing! I remember him showing it (or one like it) to me once when I was a little girl. It still worked!
Noone knows what happened to that little Brownie since then. I think I'm going to try to acquire one in working condition. I might not be able to get film for it, but I'd like to have one for the sentiment.
