I started a project a couple years ago. I wanted to collect all my family photographs and digitize them all. That way I would always be able to remember the past and look fondly upon those events and people.
This lead me to a photo I didn’t know existed. It’s of my parents and grandparents standing on my grandparents front lawn. I thought “these six people are the reason I’m here at all”. Even though I wasn’t to be born for a few more years, I look at that photo and I can’t help but think that was where my life began. Three of the six people in that photograph have since passed, and while that fills me with sadness, that photo helps me to remember them and the love I have for them all.
