Several pictures are worth several thousand words – by Beth

6 Mar

Dear ladies. I’m trying to work out this whole editing thing for my radio doco project, so I’m using this topic to play around. Hope you don’t mind.

I wanted to tell a story using photographs and the ones that had the most back-story are photos of these houses I’ve known.

First is the house that belonged to my Dad’s parents in Waipukurau, New Zealand.

Second is the house I spent the first eight years of my life in.

Lastly is the house I lived in with my parents, maternal grandparents and great aunt and uncle from 1986 to 1991.

Hope you are nosey like me and enjoy peeking into people’s photo albums.

    These are great, Beth! I feel very lucky to have been inside one of these houses.

    I’m so impressed by how you use your spare time, learning new skills and creating things.

      Agreed with Tabitha and Mischa! I usually read FFF on my phone, in Google Reader, so I have only just got around to viewing this post on a proper computer. How lovely! Thanks for putting these together for us.

    Also, faux dutch! Oh my god, yes. We used to have all manner of blue and white plates and miniature wooden clogs.
