Morning Ritual: Photo A Day - Kitchen

Day 13 of "June Photo A Day Challenge" : Kitchen

The very first photograph of Dad that I took with my digital camera!

I was going to take a new pic today, but then I remembered some other "kitchen" pics I had in my archives - my nephew Yuvraj in the kitchen at his old home, me in the kitchen at his old home, my sister in the kitchen at her old place in Delhi, my mom in the kitchen at our childhood home in Kanpur, and the one I've posted above, of Dad in the kitchen at our place in Patna.

While going through all these old pics, I suddenly realized that the one of Dad in the kitchen was the first picture I took from my digicam at home. It was taken at about a quarter past 7 in the morning, on 28th November, 2005. I'd got my camera just a few days before. Dad was busy making preparations for our customary "morning ritual" when I took the above picture. Considering all the "memories" attached with this pic, I decided to post this one today, instead of a new pic.

This is my 13th post for 2013 June Photo A Day Challenge.

@Swathi - I just realized... my camera is even older than my blog! :D

Shail Mohan said...

Nice picture. Is he making tea?

What good memories old memories bring around. Nice one. :)

Shilpa Garg said...

Wow! You remember the time and the date too!!
A good one for the prompt!

Smita said...

Yeah there are so many memories associated with a pic!!! What all comes back to our mind no?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Yes Shail. He's making tea & toast, our daily morning ritual that I posted in last month's prompt.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Jyothi. Yes old pics have a way of doing that, don't they? They let us re-live some long gone moments...

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Hahahah! Shilpa, I checked the properties of the image on my computer, and it showed me the date and time when the pic was taken. That started the chain of memories...

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Seriously Smita... photographs are a time machine!

Suzy said...

Nice memory and a good choice for the prompt. My dad used to make tea and toast for me each morning. I miss that. Loved your post.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Suzy :)

As said a pic can talks volumes.
Keep it up
Good one. :-)

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thank you, Philip :)

I think that's the best part of these challenges. We dig out pictures and relive memories. I am certainly not hung up on new pictures.

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Me neither, Reema. Last year also, I posted so many pictures from the archives, in the March Photo Challenge. I doubt if I clicked any new picture for the series that month! This year though, I have taken a lot of new pictures for the series.
