Flicking through a bag of old photographs can be a nostalgic walk down memory lane and to choose
a photograph at random which reminds one of youth has a broad appeal to all ages and sizes of people.
So much so that I carefully choose a photograph taken in North africa with the safari Truck
featured in the foreground and we the participants featured closeby the truck on the way to
Casablanca. The period is just at the end of the 196Os and not only does it ring bells of
youthful adventure but it calls to mind that freedom and carefree period in time when we were not in
debt and hadnt got a care in the world. Unlike today, remarked a friend where we had overwhelmed by
bills and more bills.
However, the situation was totally original and the Safari truck brought up all the way down to Marrakech
on this truck and this old photograph had graphicaly portrayed this author as a slim and very young woman surrounded by others who are equally slim, and very youthful. It's good to reflect on what it was like
to be very young and carefree and I remarked to a flat mate of a former time and she replied that she too had
been searching out old photographs and so the memories are good rather than bad.
Old Photographs are very interesting to look at from time to time as they have become like the classic
movies of that period .. unique - hard work pays UP!
