Photohunters: Fast

The photohunters theme this week is fast. I fear that I will be rather cliché but I thought I'd do a photographic look at the old saying that children grow up so fast.

Photobucket

It seems like yesterday, in some ways, when my daughter was a little girl. The shots above and below were taken during the Christmas of 1986. At least I think I have the year right based on my recollection of what my daughter looked like when she was that age.

Photobucket

In the shot above my daughter is playing with her grandmother (my mother) and with her father (Bill) on Christmas morning.

Photobucket

I'm guessing the shot above was one I took of my daughter around 1989 under our Christmas tree. Time kept moving so fast that before I knew it, my daughter was coming home from college for Christmas. There she is under our Christmas tree below in 2003.

Photobucket

Time has continued to move fast and my daughter graduated from law school this year. I took the shot below last weekend when she was home for an early Christmas visit.

Photobucket

For other photohunters, please visit the home of the hunt where participants post beginning on Saturday.

Yes, children grow up in the twinkling of an eye. I remember sending my son to kindergarten and now he is going to be a chef. I'm growing old.

Children do grow up too fast...but from the point of view of kids it seems so slow. Strange how time seems so different to different generations.

Really nice take on the theme. My baby now has a baby, time goes sooooo fast.

Sherry at EX Marks the Spot said...

Great pictures. Thanks for visiting my site. We both made reference to how quickly time passes. Where did your daughter attend law school and what is she doing now?

Sienna said...

Gorgeous xmas photos, the feeling is here...(xmas).

I like how you have the two shots, (under tree) with time elapsed.

Gives me some great ideas.

Wanted to wish you a merry xmas too Carver.

Summer is here in Australia, rain forecast xmas eve, (which we are happy about).

But at the moment it is warm and sunny.

All the best from down under. :-)

Willa said...

Great take on the theme this week. Cute photos of her as a little girl. Loved seeing the two similar under the tree shots. Congratulations on her graduation from Law School. It must be nice to have her home.

Squirrel said...

I love this take on the "Fast" theme. Now I'm sitting here reminiscing about my daughter. I always find it interesting when you post about your daughter since mine is almost the same age.

Ayie said...

so sweet...this post is very touching. Yes your daughter has grown into a fine lady and still I can tell she'll always be your baby.
