It was a treasure trove of old photos. We must have looked through about 500 photos. And that wasn't even one box. Remember yesterday, I was saying I'd fallen in love with, 60s/70s photo effects? These were like that. My mum's dad was a bit of a photographer and some of his photos were simply beautiful, chocablock full of classic cars etc. You have to look at them through one of those little slide viewers, which was kind of fun actually. Enough of my babbling though. I'd better show you some of these. Before I do though, keep in mind they're a LOT clearer in real life because I had to try and poke my camera lens through the viewer.

There's a LOT of photos of people on bikes for some reason!
Until my mum was two, her family lived in Iraq (before everything that's going on there now) because her dad had a job there. Some of his photos from there are beautiful too. They also went travelling very often so there's hundreds of photos from various family holidays.
I hope you enjoyed all of these? Aren't the colours just wonderful?
