    Thank you so much for all your nice comments and votes. I had pulled these old family photos out of hiding in order to scan them and preserve them. I'm amazed at the quality of them.

    - fading photo's are bang on topic & you have a good selection well arranged on the back ground, in my tt.

    excellent collection..
IMHO, feels like forced depiction of the theme.

    Thanks for the comments. I had a hard time arranging the photos, and couldn't decide whether the quilt detracted or not. I really liked having that flash of colour, so in the end I included a bit. I'm actually amazed that the photos came out as well as they did. The one on the lower right is a daguerreotype ( early photo using silver plate). And no, FC, it's not MEPO, though he certainly does look like trouble...

    Interesting idea of putting the photos on the quilt. The photos are arranged nicely though I would like to see what it would look like with more quilt showing between some of the photos. The sharpness and color is perfect.
