Nostalgic I ♥ Faces - Week #33

Photobucket
One of the things I remember about growing up was sitting on the docks of Newfoundland with my dad fishing for cod. It was about the only thing you could catch in Argentia, other than blow fish :). My mom was the best fried cod-cake cooker around. When I saw that I ♥ Faces was running a nostalgia week, I thought about this shot of my daughter. It reminds me of times fishing with my dad. Actually, my husband took this photo and I edited it with mcpactions.com urban cover model action. To see some other nostalgic shots, visit I ♥ Faces.
