Family Wall

This is my mothers.
This is my mothers.

As I walk along the wall in my grandmother’s home, many pictures of my ancestors since the day my great-grandmother was born till my mother are reminders of my heritage. The object came from my grandmother and her mother taking pictures of their families during their wedding, Parties and many other. During the time my grandmother would take photos of these activities or ask her sisters for there's and when she was done she would put them on her wall. When I spend time with my grandmother at her house I would always see this huge gallery of pictures from our family. When I asked her how long it took to make this she told me that since she was a child her mother did the same with taking pictures of her family and since she passed away my grandmother started the tradition and now my mom continues it as well even though hers is a smaller version. Every time I see this I wall, I feel closer to my relatives who are now miles away.
