The past

This week’s Photo Challenge theme is the past.

Take a photo that has a connection with the past. It could be something that reawakens a memory for you, or invites you to reminisce. It could be an old item, or an ancient place. Perhaps a person.

I decided to recreate a self-portrait of my Grandad that he took while on active service in Korea in 1955. We’ve been told we look quite alike, and I tried to emphasise this with my choice of location and clothes.

So this is my way of keeping the past alive.

Incidentally, if you are interested in my Grandad’s unusual colour photos of post-war Korea, you can see them all on Memories of Korea.

    Nice work Jon, although it looks like you got your nose from your Grandma instead.

      I’d better give it back then! She might be missing it.
