2012, Day 131 - Flashback flowers

When I was in California last weekend my mother spent some time showing me how she was taking apart old photo albums and reassembling them into nice archival tomes.  As a photographer it was a lot of fun and even though the contents were all simple family snapshots they have a great all-American feeling.  I loved seeing photos of my brother and myself as babies sitting on a rather horrible brown and cream plaid sofa with my father, photos of my grandparents all dolled up and looking much younger than I remember, images of my baby sisters looking cherubic.  Why share this?  Because these flowers, with their pink, peach, yellow, and orange tones, reminded me of rather awful 70s upholstery fabric.  I don't know what I saw something like this in the old photos but that is what it reminds me of and why I shared that story.
