A Moment in Time

I decided to decorate our family room with old pictures, so I've been collecting them from various people in our family. These are some of my favorites. I think what I'm most drawn to about them is they're all candid; or if they are posed, it seems like only for a second, long enough to get a picture, then life proceedes. It makes me imagine the few seconds after they were taken. I feel like you can almost feel the movement in them. I hope that makes sense as you're looking through them.

Side note: If I knew when or where these were taken, or any interesting info about them, I put it underneath the image.

1932 - He was a doctor.

1943 - Oddessa, TX

1953 - 1946 Ford Convertible

1941 - This woman lived to be 99 1/2 years old. She was born in 1906, (making her 35 in this picture).
She was only a third of the way into her life!
1972 - Waylon Jennings

1960

1995 - Odessa, TX - Me (in the middle with the awesome blue/purple/magenta sweater), my brother, sister, and first cousins we grew up with. This is my favorite picture of us all together.
