Nana's Photos Sifting through archeological layers of photographs - at first encountering younger versions of myself and siblings, going backwards until I find a picture of Nana and Grandad looking like Bonnie and Clyde I never knew that side of her, I never knew Grandad. all I remember is him sitting by the dining room table, but was it real? I learned of his death through osmosis - one day I knew he was gone, though I was never told But here they are together still in their twenties, looking at the camera with a future ahead of them as we all do.

This was written with the prompt about an old photograph provided by the Carrot Ranch July 1 Flash Fiction Challenge.
The prompt reminded me of the time my siblings and I went through our grandmother’s photos that were all in a large pile in a hall cupboard and we found that photograph. There were also ones of Nana dressed as a flapper. She looked as though she was quite stylish then, not the grandmother I had known.
