How old does something have to be in order to be considered “vintage”? I googled it… and the answers were all different. Some sites said 7 years, some said 25, and some said something completely different.
Whether it is 7 or 25 years, one thing is for certain… objects and items from my childhood are becoming vintage (and depending on who you ask… they already are 😉 ).
And, I guess, I am vintage… but I didn’t go for a self portrait this time. Instead, my subject is something very special from my childhood. This is a little dress I wore when I was about 7 months old. It has been carefully kept and treasured all these years. It has made it through many moves across the country. And, when my daughter was 7 months old, she wore this dress too. I have photos of me wearing it and her wearing it. More treasured memories to go along with this vintage dress.
I took it out of my closet last night and decided to take another photo of her wearing it. It’s a little bit too small to work as a dress now, but it works as a shirt.
Travel with me to visit the amazing and talented Jobrina Hofleit, Goodyear, Arizona Photographer, to see her interpretation of this week’s theme.
