Litratong Pinoy: Luma Na (aged)


Luma na talaga ang litratong ito ng nanay ko. Dalagang Pilipina, 20 taong gulang ang nanay ko noong 1963 nang kinuha ang litratong ito. Nasira na sa tagal ng panahon na nakatago lamang sa kanyang aparador. Mabuti at natagpuan ko noong isang taon at balak ko sanang ipa-restore. Maraming nagsasabi na kamukha ko raw ang nanay ko---ayaw namin parehong pumayag. Sabi n'ya mas maganda s'ya at sumasang-ayon naman ako.:D

This is an old photograph of my mother, taken in 1963 when she was 20 years old. Time has ruined this photograph that she kept in her dresser for many years. I finally found it last year and thought of having it restored. People say that I look like my mother---we both disagree---she says she's prettier, and I agree with her.:D

my goodness, Luna! Your mom looks like you!!! or rather you're a splitting image of your mom. I thought you had made a fancy photoshop trick of yourself in a kimona! Intriguing din yung parang "mata ng Diyos" as formed by the apses of the house at the back...

This photo I believe was in the 1940's or earlier and in a much better condition.

Lovely photo. I'm glad that you were able to retrieve and salvage it. I also love looking at old family photos whenever I'm at home in Manila. They bring back a lot of happy memories. :)
