Alicia at More Than Words started Friday Photo Flashback to digitally capture those old photos from the days of film by scanning them. I love this idea and was excited to pull out my photo albums and take a trip down memory lane.
First up is my brother, Matt, at about 15,000 feet. I'm not sure I ever saw a bigger smile on his face. Of course, part of it might have been caused by the severe 120 MPH wind of freefall. But still, it was amazing to see him so happy. (Skydiving was my birthday present to him when he turned 18.)
(Unfortunately, this is a scan of a photocopy. I've misplaced the original.)
Next up was me. The photos of me leave a lot to be desired. I was wearing a very unattractive, rather tight hot pink jumpsuit. So, I'll leave you with this shot of the my butt and a very beautiful landscape.
Sadly, Matt died a few months later in an accident. I would have loved to have done more of these types of activities with him and to know the man he would become. I miss him terribly.
