Photohunters: Classic



The photohunt theme this week is classic. The bottom right hand photo is a classic photograph of my mother in Surrey (UK) in the mid 1970s.
The other photographs in the group above were taken by my parents in Greece and they are classics although not technically from the classical period of Ancient Greece. I associate The Acropolis (left hand photos) with the classical era of ancient Greece but I think it pre-dates it. The top right hand picture was taken in Olympia of a byzantine church facing the Zeus temple and I think it's a classic.
The little black dress is a classic in terms of a woman's wardrobe. I'm pretty sure the dress above was my mothers. I'm not positive about that but in any event I've held on to it because I think it's pretty.

Thanks for visiting and to answer the question about where my mom was from. She was from the NC mountains in the U.S. The photograph of her was on a trip to the UK. Happy hunting to everyone.

Happy weekend Carver!

Colin Campbell said...

Late to the party, but enjoying looking at all the clever stuff that people have put together.

Satkuru is right. We have hardly any pictures of our first ten years. Our kids have one for every day of their life. How much do you nee to document a life?

A. said...

I love the photos taken by your parents. I'm wondering now where in Surrey that could be, I love the dress - beautiful.

Barbara H. @ Stray Thoughts said...

AscenderRisesAbove said...

greece would be lovely to see! all that history; and you are right - just flowing with classic art and architecture; it would be wonderful to walk among all that history

Carver said...

Thanks for visiting, everyone. I fear I would split the seams on that dress if I wore it before I lose quite a few pounds. I'm not sure where in Surrey that the photo of my mom was taken. Take care and happy hunting.

lissa said...

Those photos are so 70s, aren't they? and you can never go wrong with the black dress as a classic.
