Ch-Ch-Changes | Kylie Purtell - Capturing Life

Wednesday, 14 July 2010


Get those camera's clicking or start going through your archive or start trawling online, this week we want you to show us CHANGE in photos!
I decided for this challenge to post some photos of my Grandmother, Valerie Torning (nee Allen). These pictures not only demonstrate the change from girl to woman, but also in a small way the change in photography.

1928 - My grandmother, Valerie Allen, about 5 years old

1943 - Grandma on her Wedding Day January 1st, aged 20, before she was even a Ma!
(What a hottie huh!)

1986 - Grandma with her Order of Australia medal, recieved for Services to the Community


  1. I love old photo's...and then seeing how people have changed over the years.....

  2. Wow.... sorry to jump in here again but I just have to you are the spitting image of your Grandmother ...... on her wedding ..ok done now.... :)

  3. Great post. I love old photos. My grandmother split her collection up across the family and I'm trying to track them down so I can scan them and keep a record.
