Little Angels

"Christmas 1961 was the year my dad got his new Kodak Brownie 'Star Flash' camera. This was his first 'modern' camera and he put it into action early so he could get some action shots on Christmas morning. These two photos show my brother David and I garbed in our matching red sweaters and bow ties. The tree was placed in our dining room. My mom became the photographer for the second shot, which includes my dad and his aunt, Della Given, who lived in St. Albans for many years. My dad's camera took size 127 film and made 12 shots on a roll. As tight as he was about taking pictures, the roll from Christmas 1961 probably also has shots from summer vacation 1962."

Such great journaling, Cindy! I have to say at first I was thinking, wow, Cindy was dressed in a tie with very short hair as a little girl LOL but now see that this is your husband :) Very very sweet!

Haha. When using film, doesn't everyone conserve the film tightly? I couldn't even tell you what is on some of the film rolls I have.. hey now, why haven't I developed those yet?
