I visited aunt this Sunday and we spent hours chatting about our relatives and old days, browsing through the photos, some almost 100 years old. On her wedding photo my aunt looked like Sophia Loren when she was about 17 years old. She is an amazing woman. My aunt, I mean.
So, her name was Viktorija but she was called Vika. His name was Ciril, and he called her Viki. She told me this once when she was over 85 years old. They were both born in 1906. The left photo was taken in 1927 and the right one in 1935. This is their wedding photo. She never smiles on the photos. You can notice how much her outfit changed in only a few years. I like her "twenties" dress and hairdo. :)
Today I know that granddad was a passionate man; unfortunately she was not. Maybe she never really loved him, who knows. They lived together almost 24 hours a day but they were actually not talking to each other, in the last years both wishing they would live alone. But their wish never really came true because grandmom died only 12 days after granddad.
It is interesting that most of the photos I have are not of people but of nature and places I visited. I rarely take photos of people. I don't even have many photos of myself. And I don't have such fancy dresses or shoes in my wardrobe at all. :)
