    I love these photos! It always makes me curious as to what was going on behind those eyes. In this collection I wish you had a copy of a picture of my mother as a little girl her eyes were so big and adorable. In the picture she had told us she was afraid of the photographer’s camera so she would never smile on her pictures. You could really see the sadness in her eyes because of her fear. It sounds silly but her fear in her eyes is quite adorable.

      I was drawn into all of them the moment I saw them. Looking at the first three I decided that I had to do a blog post. I wonder what all of them were thinking. Where they happy considering the time period they lived in. Sometimes I wish I could enter a time machine to go back and talk with people I see in photographs.
