Old photographs

Been uncovering a few here and there, and they're hilarious. They always make me either cry or laugh, or both. In a really good way.

First, the old, old days....
"Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child...

- Z.M School - Mount Carmel
Only in sleep Time is forgotten --
What may have come to them, who can know?
Yet we played last night as long ago,...

- St.Paul's High
The years had not sharpened their smooth round faces,
I met their eyes and found them mild --
Do they, too, dream of me, I wonder,
And for them, am I too a child?

Then, the recent old days :-) .....

Those college days, and the worries, and the hard work...
And the craziness! Decking up your male housemates in your clothes...and what made it priceless is the sense to take a picture of them all decked up. [B - forgive me, I couldn't resist! But you're not recognisable anyway :)]
And my first job, and getting my hard work officially recognised for the first time - IBM & the 'Shoorveer Award' :-)
(And how in the world did I not notice that cute guy with the cute smile at the time?!)

I love old photos. I had a few of B&W photos mine when I was little (I'm still little, by the way)but I think they are lost now :(

lucy - My obsession with old pictures is such that I can spend hours just looking at old photos of people I don't even know. I even search for them online once in a while. You should try to find yours and post them too. And yeah that's weird looking me in the black uniform which is actually dark green, but me touching up the pic to make it clearer has messed things up.

mesjay said...

So sweet and nostalgic. Congrats for the award. You look different in each photo you've posted, i still can't picture you.

Jerusha said...

mesjay - My hair changes a lot, I think that alters my appearance a lot. Kind of funny, I was just listening to Dylan's man of constant sorrow, and seeing your comment, first thought was 'woman of constant change depending on my sorrows' :)
