the charm of old photographs

I was at my grandparents' house over the weekend. And in the hall, they have a wall simply covered in photographs of their families, friends and childhood years from a long  time ago. The many beautiful old photographs have always had me gazing at them for ages, working out exactly who every one was. And this time I once again gazed upon them, I had a camera in  my hand and captured a few of the many old pictures of my relatives and ancestors. It was great fun and I loved it.
There is truly a charm about photographing old photographs.
