Family picture

I love old photos, the color sepia, the smell of them, the little stains on them. This one was made on the wedding day of my husband's grandfather and grandmother. Do you see the lovely wedding dress the bride is wearing? It is a Charleston dress with a long train. It must have been very modern at that time. This wedding photo was made at the backside of the farmhouse where my husband grew up. His older brother lives in the house now. If you double click on the picture you can see all the serious faces. Making family pictures was serious business.
