Christmas Wonder - Posted on 12/23/2007
My grandfather took this on Christmas Day almost 60 years ago, using a Ciroflex TLR camera. The man in the image is my father, and the young child looking on is my cousin Jerry. Christmas was always such a special time for my family, as we gathered together to enjoy good company and lots of good food! Most of my Christmas holidays as a child were spent in the house that I live in now, so I have those sweet memories to surround me every single day of the year.

Thank you all for visiting and commenting. I wish each of you a safe, peaceful, and blessed holiday, filled with good food, good friends, and loving family. Merry Christmas everyone! --Kim

    Wow, is this the camera you told me about? Be interesting to find a similar type of film and capture your family today with the camera and compare them side by side, generations through the same lens.

    What great, Christmassy expressions on both your cousin Jerry and your dad! It's so cool that you live in the same house as then. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that 2008 is very good to you and yours. Thanks for a wonderful year of your pictures and very encouraging and kind comments, Kim!
