A Young, Old Friend

I was browsing through some albums on my computer this morning and came across this beautiful image of my friend, Willa.
This portrait was taken when she was about 17 years old back in 1928. She was a beautiful young lady - she was a beautiful older lady !! Beautiful on the inside as well as the outside !! These black and white vintage photos have a certain quality that always make me nostalgic. They cause me to want to go back in time and live in those days. Then, I think about all the modern conveniences I have that were not available to my older friends and relatives. I am happy to be where I am, in this day and age. But, I miss these people that were a part of my life for so long !!
