Mother’s Family Picture

This picture is really rare to my family because the whole family is in this picture. Some of the pictures are cropped from other pictures but as can be seen one of them is in black and white and that’s because one of aunts never wanted her picture taken so it’s very rare to see a picture of her.

My family lived in Mexico and at the time from which they lived there wasn’t that much technology. Even though there wasn’t a lot of technology as today, there were cameras that had film that had to be developed. One of my aunts didn’t really like pictures so she almost never took pictures. She was also in an abusive relationship which the husband didn’t let her go home that much so the family didn’t see her as often.

This picture frame has all my aunts and uncles as well as my grandparents which we will one day see once again. This picture frame is the only thing we have left to remember them and it is very valuable to us.
