Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic
Nostalgic. Sometimes, we long for the past: for moments we want to remember or recapture. The good times. The golden years. Or perhaps we’re homesick, or longing for something — or someone — that might have been.
This past month while in New York City, I visited Coney Island. There was just something about this seaside amusement park that conjured memories from my childhood, even though I’d never been there. Maybe the smells, sounds, and sights reminded me of family trips to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and Disneyland, both in California. And the quick thrills I felt going upside down on a rollercoaster, and later winning a stuffed animal at a carnival booth, transported me back to 1985.
IN A NEW POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PICTURE THAT MAKES YOU NOSTALGIC.
As with most of our photo challenges, we’re keeping this one wide open to interpretation. Some ideas:
- A meaningful family photograph.
- A snapshot of something or someone that reminds you of your past.
- A “throwback” image of a thing or activity you once loved.
- A picture of your home, home city/country, or a place that you long for.
- An image edited with a vintage filter (try using Instagram, PicMonkey, or other apps).
We look forward to see your nostalgic images!
