Something rather amazing happened today and I just had to share…
Today, I discovered that I quite literally walked a mile in my father’s footsteps… only I walked it 40 years later. I was sorting through some slides this afternoon when I came across some very familiar images. As you can imagine the slides aren’t labelled with anything other than a date and as I lifted them to the light squinting to make out the shapes I was surprised when I immediately recognized the cobbled streets of Clovelly.
Back in 2012 we spent the day in Clovelly and I had taken many lovely pictures…What I hadn’t realized was that I must have stood in almost the exact same place as my father and took almost identical pictures.
Below on the left are his pictures… Mine are on the right…
The only one that was different was the picture of the pub. But we both took pictures of it! :o)
Finding these slides was a pleasant surprise. I wasn’t looking for them, but finding them made me feel just that little bit closer to my Dad. You wonder why you take up certain hobbies and I guess I took to photography just like he did :o)
Until next time...♥
