Day 15 - 30 Day Photo Challenge: Something that makes me sad

Actually this picture makes me happy because you can see how much in love/lust my Mum and Dad were way back then (I think it's around 57 years ago). It's sad because firstly they are both gone now (Dad four years ago and Mum this June) and also sad because they spent alot of their life together arguing or resentful. I'm sure there were years they loved being together, but as I was the last of five, I didn't see much of that. They seemed happy the most when they were out drinking and dancing together. So I absolutely love this photo but it also makes me sad that they couldn't be like that all the time. I want to be like them in that photo at that time with my husband for the rest of my life.


  1. hey Becci, that photo of your parents is really beautiful. The passion of that embrace is more than heart warming.

    So sorry that you lost your mum so recently.

  2. Thanks Gemma, hadn't blogged about it but some things you keep to yourself. We stumbled across the photo when the 5 of us (3 sisters, 1 brother) were gathering photos for Mum's funeral 'movie'. We love it so much I'm going to get copies printed on canvas for all of us. The movie was popular too, I backed it with her favourite Neil Diamond and Tom Jones songs and sent copies out to all of us.

  3. Hi Becci,
    Also very sorry to hear about your mum...and touched by this beautiful photo! What a classic. Don't we all wish for a beautiful photo like this to look back on in decades to come!
