Kicking you heels on a wall - Sepia Saturday
This week's prompt with a damaged picture made me look for photographs that have been hidden away for years. During WWII a young girl had her photo taken. This had ghostly stripes where light had crept in. After the war was over our little girl appears agai...

A - Z Challenge 2015 - Butterflies 'Z'
