michelle_athome Here's a photo from my Nan's wedding in 1954. She is stood with her Dad Osmond outside St Paul's in Scotforth, Lancaster. Looks like it hasn't changed much since then! We have been going through old photos with her as she has Dementia and she had a nice time reminiscing. I learnt that her mum called her Dad "Ozzy" and her mum's pet name was Dolly.she remembered her mum was always laughing, and her best friend was her sister Belle, Nan said her mum went everywhere with Aunty Belle. Strange how Dementia makes people remember snippets from their youth that they never seemed to talk about normally #dearphotograph #dementia 17h

Normal NYPL Picture Collection
nyplpicturecollection A bead of sweat ran down the lion's neck. His eyes were closed against the summer sun. He had been waiting for summer all winter but now that it was finally here he was longing for a cool breeze. He leaned slightly to his right. "Patience, what time is it?" The other lion tilted his head but didn't open his eyes. "Didn't we have this conversation already? It doesn't matter what time it is? Do you have somewhere you need to be?" "Not really," the lion replied. "Just curious." Patience thought for a moment and replied. "What did I tell you about curiosity and cats? It doesn't matter if it's the bright light of day or the quiet shelter of night. No one ever steps in the same river twice. The arrow of time flows. Now is then, over and over again. We should all slow down and live for the moments." Fortitude thought about that as a man in a suit passed hurriedly by, his thumbs a flurry of activity on his mobile device. "Hey!", the lion said. The man stumbled to a stop and looked up at the lion. "Slow down. Live for the moments. Read a book." #fakelionquotes #dearphotograph #dearpostcard 🌞 2d

thirstyphotographer Dear Photograph,
As I write this I have tears of sadness but an endless heart full of memories 30 years long.
This was the house I held my first house party in without my parents knowing but they found out a few weeks later and I was in deep shit, the house where I would sneak onto the roof outside my bedroom window and talk on the phone until my parents yelled at me to get down for fear I would fall off. My brother and I used to blare Jody Watley and Technotronic until the speakers blew and my parents couldn't figure out why. This is the house where my mom and I helped deliver a neighbours baby in the middle of the night. We were even on the news.

This was my life. The majority of it, and now we must move onto greener pastures.
We were the Penney's of Pennyhill Drive.
When you think of it, we always will be. We made Pennyhill "cool". It's been a slice, Malvern. Thanks for the memories. #dearphotograph #thebigmove2015 #ThePenneysofPennyhillDrive

taynicks Sixteen years ago I took my first trip to Europe. I fell in love and knew I wanted to come back. Today, I revisited Buckingham Palace - reminisced on past travels and dreamed of what's to come. #London #dearphotograph 6d
