Old family photos discovered

Iris in the 1960's

My Sister Iris
This photo is from around forty years ago. It was in a batch of slides my dad took that I recently discovered. That is one of the neatest things about good old fashioned analog film photography. You can have a container of very old pictures languish undiscovered like a time capsule waiting to be opened. Then, when you do open it, it explodes with memories. Fifty years from now how will people find our digital memories? Will an old CD ROM or hard drive beckon to be opened like an old box of pictures does?

Today is my sister's birthday. Soon she is going to be moving to California. I am really looking forward to having her closer. Happy birthday sister! This photo was taken in the living room of my parents' house on Granada Drive in Concord, CA. I hope to scan and share more as I get time.
