Joie de Vivre

May we all experience small and innocent joys in our lives,

just as these little guys did years ago. Don't you just love
the middle lad?

I have a fascination with vintage photos, particularly children and women. I find them inspirational and also a wonderful reference resource. This photo is from Dargie's photostream on Flickr.

I love looking at vintage photos too. I like to imagine the story behind them! :)

There is a romance and magic about old
photos, and also a poignancy. I love to find an old photo that has some information about it - even then your imagination still builds on that.

I'm glad that everyone has enjoyed this one. These little boys, frozen in a moment, immediately captured me.
