Photo Art Friday - Music

The challenge this week over at Pixel Dust Photo Art – Photo Art Friday was vintage.

For this challenge I used:

  5. what I got straightaway was a HUGE hit of nostalgia, for my grandparents, in particular for their magical qualities that I so admired without even knowing I was admiring them...

  7. I still have memories of listening to records on the Victrola in the 40's. Learning to ball room dance with my father and listening to my mother play the piano ... music was a most wonderful part of my growing up years ... thank you for the memories.
