Vintage Photo-For *I Heart Faces*


'Blue eyes'
in a flier's helmet.

DSC_0167


The theme for the photo contest at
*i heart faces* this week is 'Nostalgia'.


This melancholy take of Levi in a flier's helmet from his grandpa's WWII collection, {a photo I had in a collage earlier this week} has a poignant and vintage vibe. It has the ambiance and the mood of a young {well maybe not this young!} pilot, before his first solo flight. { ya, I'm sure that's what he was thinking! not that he just wanted this photo shoot to be over!}


Check out all the other nostalgia style entries for this week over at~
