When I look back at all my family photo albums, there is not a single image I find with my grandparents. There are images with mom, dad, my brother... even with my dog and a stray cat whom we had adopted... but seriously none with my grandpa and grandma. And those were the two people I loved the most... I still do, even after they are long gone.

And so, I have sworn that whichever part of the world I will travel to now... I will make sure to photograph a grandparent or great grandparent with their grandchild... for how often really do we get our grandparents into the frame?!

And not only has this project helped me rebuild memories of my childhood in a way... meeting and interacting with all the elderlies has really taught me so much about life.

I hope you like some of these images that I share here.

I wonder if they are great-grandparents or just got kids at high age. All seems so old, most of the grandparents to toddlers I see is in their 50s or so.

So much going on in this one. It's definitely arty, but the composition is wonderful.

The colours, chairs, paintings. The couple reading and knitting and talking. Beautiful.

I do wish the photo editing hadn't smoothed out Grandma's hair into a soft blur and added lip gloss to the baby. That aside, it's a sweet picture.
