I knew immediately which photo I would use when I saw this week’s word prompt.  This picture was taken of my sister Patti greeting my husband Bob at my nephew Jeff’s wedding. It was taken long before digital cameras were invented.  Thanks, technology, for good scanners to translate all these old photos as well as simple editing tools to remove the specks they all seem to contain. I know the quality is terrible, but I could not resist using it.


And since there is no such thing as too much jubilation, here are some more:

    Thank you Judy for your post. Amen to technology, cameras have come so far and scanners. It is almost unbelievable. I bought myself a new cell phone strictly for the purpose of taking pictures. I found out my hands are so numb and so clumsy. I couldn’t even handle the camera or the phone, let alone take pictures. So I sent out a cry for help and some of you good folks said, get a selfi stick, I didn’t even know what it was. But I got one and I do not believe my eyes. I think it will work just great. So now I can take pictures again. Technology rules this world for sure!

    I love your old pictures. I love mine too, but I’m so lazy about scanning. It’s such a tedium process and I no longer have a computer in the office with the printer. I’m going to have to figure out how I can scan using my laptop now that my desktop has left home. Hmm.

    Beautiful photos, I love the emotions in them! I especially like the first photo, the old, scanned photo. Somehow, back then we had tons of these photographs where the subjects were caught unsuspecting, honest and raw, opposed to nowadays where I feel like we more often than not, not only pose, but pose as “happiness” always on every photo.
