Sepia Scenes - Rockies

 






















Sepia Scenes is the meme that allows the past to shine in this soft monochrome.

Many viewers remember that I am in the process of scanning my past, especially Grandpa Ralph (I) and Grandma Agnes. I am guessing that the year is 1966, and the place is the Garden of the Gods outside Colorado Springs.

Grandpa was one who liked to have pictures taken in front of signs that proved that he indeed was there. Grandma looks elegant in that dress and floppy sun hat. Agnes considered herself a lady as she saw it, and dressed like one. See fine sepia in the past, or present, at this fun meme.

Love the older photos. I say 'older' because I am older but not OLD. haha!

Your grandmother looks elegant in the flowered dress and hat.

PS. I am glad you saw the horse too. MB

Your grandma looks very stylish, Ralph - she knew the fashion of her time for sure.
Aren't you alike your grandpa?
All the best!

I saw GOTGs six years later. The way we were is so different now.

It is always liberating to visit the past. And your grandparents are two special people. Keep scanning Ralph!

O, we've been to the Garden of the Gods several times. We lived in Colo. a couple of different times while Mr. Sweet had jobs going there. Once the kids were in school, we couldn't go with him as much. Once we lived in Tuba City, AZ. right on the Navajo reservation. Was there for about 6 months and I did have a time looking for jewelry, rugs, pottery...but we loved Colorado best. :)
