Texture Tuesday - Story

This week our challenge was to share a photo that went with the theme 'story'.  This was a tough on for me until I started searching through my photos and found the photos sent to my by my cousin D.  She spent a good deal of time over the last year researching our geneology.  She searched online and reconnected with some distant family.  I always thought that my Dad's father came from a small family.  Through this process I learned that was not so!  He and my great grandfather are a bit of a mystery to me.  There are many hidden stories that have yet to be uncovered.  Our distant cousin was kind enough to share a CD full of old photos.  The old saying a picture is worth a thousand words certainly popped into my mind when I looked at all the images.  They are beautiful and mysterious all at once.  One of my favorites is the following of my grandfather when he was younger.  He is so handsome and when I look at this image I can't help but think of my cousin M.  He looked so much like this picture of my grandfather.   I'd love to hear the story that must have gone with this image.

I used Kim's textures silence and zuzu to alter my original image.  


Oh for any photo challenge lovers please go over to my new collaborative blog, Our Word View and join us on Sundays or any day throughout the week to share your take on a single word.  We'd love to check out your interpretations.
