Grandparents House

My great grandparents' house
My great grandparents' house

 This house represents the hard work my paternal great grandparents had to go through after coming to the U.S. My great grandparents came to the U.S around 1960-1961. They came over to the U.S in search for a better life. They left right as The Mexican Dirty War (Guerra sucia) which was, in a way, the Mexican Cold War. They had left during the rising tensions and with a child, that being my grandmother. When they came here, my great grandfather became the average working man while my great grandmother had to take care of my grandmother and her brothers and sisters. As they were developing they had moved from house to house until they finally stopped at their house now. Since they're arrival, my paternal side has been, slowly, going further and further, and I want to be able to shoot our progress farther.
