I wrote this blog post for The Photo Managers (when it was called APPO), but it’s essentially Mom’s Boxes Part 4, since I found most of the photos in Mom’s boxes.
Photos keep memories alive. And they tell the story of a family over time. They show how it grew and how it changed. Some people have the forethought to mark the passage of time by taking photos of their kids each year wearing the same outfit (oversized at the outset), or standing next to a fixed object. And sometimes everyday objects in a family’s life seem to inadvertently bear witness to these changes for us.

How have the everyday objects in your family’s lives inadvertently done that for you?
