Photography is in my DNA

Over the past few months, I have been scanning my wife’s grandmother’s photographs. She has thousands of photos stored between boxes and albums.

Fortunately, we have a bulk print scanner that makes the process a little easier.

My aunt has also been giving me boxes and albums to scan. They contain thousands of photographs my grandfather and biological father made over their years.

I thought I would take a moment to share three of my favorite photos. Each of which is of my father and a camera.

These photos are from a surprise party for my grandparents. In the photos are my father, my aunt, my mother, my uncle, and my grandmother. There is one woman who I do not recognize.

My grandfather and father photographed so many events, trips, and other of life’s things. So photography is in my DNA. I am so honored to have their cameras alongside my own.

  1. You look just like your dad! Spitting image…DNA all around!

  2. When I was younger, my dad used to take my brother and me out to his office, every Sunday, and take pictures of us there. When I got a little older, he gave me the camera he used to take all the photos. I went by myself to go find the pictures he had washed. Every time I look at that camera it brings tears to my eyes because of the the feeling of nostalgia. My brother is late and that camera and those pictures are one of my few tangible memories of him.

    1. Totally, they were such a good find!
