photostory friday: golden years

these photos were taken on saturday april 23, 1960



and these were taken on saturday april 24, 2010




my parents have been married for 50 years!

..and mr scrappy and i have been married for 25

75 years between the 4 of us

not a bad effort

i feel quite honoured to have been a part of their celebrations
they certainly are amazing role models for marriage

they drive each other crazy i'm sure, but for better or for worse (and all the other 'and/ors')
they look pretty damn happy to me!

(this last photo is a little blurry, as my dad was spinning mum around the dance floor, and that wonderful portrait lens of mine has a VERY narrow depth of field!)

i really enjoyed scanning in their wedding album (for the photo board), and the opportunity to touch up many of the photos, and i now look forward to scrapping them too!
