Old Photos and Nostalgia





I recently discovered a folder on the network where my dad had stored photos dating back to 2002 and even included some I'd taken myself and lost due to crashed computers etc. So for a few days or so I went  through these photos, feeling crushed by that nostalgic mix of happiness and sadness. I loved looking back at these old pictures, rediscovering memories I thought I'd forgotten and it made me sad that there are a lot less of these photos in recent years. I've been the typical teenager, hiding my face when a camera has been pointed at me and when I take photos, all I do is upload them to facebook, delete them a couple years later and then they're lost forever. I don't want that anymore. I don't want all my memories to be lost with no reminders. For this reason, I have made a 'half-year resolution' of sorts - I want to take more pictures and with a decent camera rather than just my phone (which is why I bought the camera mentioned in this post). I want pictures of everything. I want those memories.

  1. So cute, I love looking at old photos :) When I was 15 I had a horrible incident of computer crashing and losing photos/music, so ever since then I've kept an external hardrive! It's easy to keep memories safe that way :)

    1. That's awful! I should probably do the same, laptops come to my home to die XD I can be a bit clumsy and careless >.<

  2. Adorable! I love old pictures - especially ones of me with my great nana Nelly. She always looked so happy to be with me. I love looking at picture of my sister too. I'm just 20 and she almost 6! My great nana met her before she passed and loved her dearly so those photos are my favourite :)
    Having your own camera is great! Enjoy snapping away! <3

  9. Aww you're so cute, I love the snow white outfit. It makes me sad that photos don't seem to be printed out anymore. They just seem to be taken on a camera and stored digitally somewhere.

    1. Yeh, just because photos are digital now doesn't mean they shouldn't be printed out too! Although I would prefer it if there weren't cringey photos of me as an awkward kid around my parents house xD

  11. I know how you feel, when I was little I asked my dad all the time to take me photos and now I try to stay away from the camera as much as possible. The picture's are lovely :)

    1. That is indeed me. I'm 6-7 in these photos xD You shouldn't dye your hair, your hair is lovely! I tried to dye my hair black the first time I dyed my hair aged 11. I thought you were meant to put it in completely wet hair, it dripped down my back and dyed my skin blue XD

      Love your blog :)

  14. These photos are so cute! I know what you mean I'm realising more and more how important is to capture memories, and especially get photos into physical albums rather than just stored on a computer somewhere. xx

  16. There's nothing cuter when you stumble across old photos it brings back so many good memories and tell so many stories that you thought you had forgotten all about! x
