52 Fridays, Week 8: "Books"

It's Friday again! This has really become a fun project for me. It's challenging and something I'm doing to help me grow in my photography. Thanks to the girls on the Bloom Forum for letting me join their group!

This week's theme of books was really easy for me. My husband has all these old books!!! We even have a set of encyclopedias from 1902! But this book is my favorite, for so many reasons! It's my father-in-law's record of his time in WWII. It's b&w photography! It's old!! (Can you tell I LOVE LOVE old, vintage things?) It's history! - and not just history you find in a textbook - but someone close to us who lived it! My husband will forever have the memory of what life was like for his dad during the war through his dad's eyes. And what a gift for our son to be able to have that part of history in his own home. My father-in-law did a pretty good job of writing on the back of most of the pictures... so I shared what he wrote with you and some of my favorite pictures. I wish you could see all of them - they are amazing! The first picture is the book with the jacket my father-in-law wore as part of his uniform in WWII. Hmmmm... I'm thinkin' vintage photoshoot with someone in that jacket! That may be on the docket for later! Hope you enjoy..........
