The 70's weren't that long ago, you know. Okay. So, maybe they kind of were... But, not really. Not in my mind anyway.
Sarah Wilson, one of my favorite bloggers, recently posted some sweet photos of her family from the 70's and I immediately recognized the yellowish milky tint, the unmistakable clothes and just the feel of them. And she grew up oceans away in Australia (yay Aussies!)!
Granted, only a short part of my formative years were spent in the 70's - I spent most of my childhood in the 80's - however, I just love looking at these old photos and remembering the scratchy, multi-colored couch we had in the living room, playing in the wheat fields outside our house and wearing matching outfits with my twin sister. And, I'm pretty sure all of these were taken by my dad - a budding photographer himself in those days (now that I think of it, these were probably taken with his Canon AE-1).
What about you? Do have any old photos from the 70's and 80's? What do they look like? Feel free to share a link in the comments!
