Team-Up Thursday~ Old and New

teamup

Hosted by Megan and Hip Momma

This week, Berta and I focused our attention on the idea of "old and new." As I went about my days, I looked for signs of the interplay between the two concepts. When it came down to making a decision on something to photograph, I couldn't pass up the chance to snap some shots of Sugar Bear with her favorite book. My photo portrays a NEW reader reading some OLD stories. The Dick and Jane series first came about in the 1930's. Many generations of children learned to read through the adventures of Dick and Jane. When I was still pregnant with Sugar, I found this collection of Dick and Jane stories, and couldn't pass up the purchase. A little over a month ago, when Sugar suddenly decided to start reading, I grabbed this book out of the closet where it had been waiting, and boy on boy did she take to it like a duck to water. Each and every night, we lay in her bed, and she reads to me from this book. It is so surreal to have her reading to ME. It is amazing.

Berta's take on the theme is a real classic, and I adore the shot she got of her mother with the newest member of the family. I mean.....it doesn't get any better than that. Her photo is the perfect combination of "old and new." Love it.

Head on over to Megan's blog to see what the other pairs are up to this week.

Both shots are absolutely wonderful! Sugar has amazing eyes and a photo of a grandmother and child is always heartwarming!

Your shot is great! I love those young eyes peeking over the top of the book sporting its vintage cover. :) Great combo with Berta's realistic shot too. I like the differences in the interpretation.

HipMomma said...

We have that book! It's so fantastic for new readers, I have one too. They always say that everything old is new again and so glad that Dick and Jane made it back. Love her eyes peeking over.

Jen said...

I love both pics, especially next to each other. How amazing to have SB reading to you! I remember when I was in grade school and I found a whole set of Dick and Jane books from when my grandma used to be a teacher and I read them over and over again. They're so sweet.
