New life for the old photo

I love old photos from our family archive. Most of them are black and white, and don't pretend to be of high quality. But they've a soul of some sort. And sometimes - interesting ideas.

unfortunately, they were done with primitive camera and developed and home then. They're not professional and have special meanings only to my family and me.

But I thought of the ideas... And tried to give old photos a new life - as illustrations.

This one was a photo in it's 'previous life'. The woman is my mother, the short-haired kid is me. I'm about 5 years old there. We're waiting for a ship to take us to the recreation centre.

And this is an alley near my home. I always liked the contrast: metal and concrete constructions on one side of the road and birch trees - on the other. Nature vs. Technology.

I will continue what I began: more of our old photos will become illustrations, in new colors and with slightly different forms sometimes, but with the same idea.
