What image can you find that gives you a bit of nostalgia?

Asked by erichw1504 (26404points) May 26th, 2011

Nostalgia is a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time in one’s life, to one’s home or homeland, or to one’s family and friends; a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time.

Find an image from the internet and link to it here.
Then describe what it is and why it gives you a feeling of nostalgia.
It can literally be any person, place or thing.

If you can’t find an image of it, then just skip that part.

Monsters in My Pocket.

I used to have over a hundred of those little dudes. It brings me back to my childhood when my brother and I would play with them.

I can’t even describe how much I loved my Commodore 64.

(Note: I don’t want to go back to this time. Rather, seeing a photo of the C64 can bring up many memories of those times. I can almost smell those times, if that makes any sense.)

My first car

My grandfather had an autobody shop and converted the car from a wreck to something barely driveable. A gift on my sixteenth birthday, after I had rushed out and passed my driver’s test.

My Dad had the sister ship to this and some of my best memories are of spending time with him sailing it south from NY to FLA and the Bahamas in the fall.

This reminds me of the patch of sunshine that would shine between the houses when I was a child. I remember sitting there, sucking my thumb and watching the other children play.

The parents’ house has a carport, and they kept a picnic table and grill in the back of it. When the weather warmed up, the family would have cookouts, make homemade ice-cream (hand-cranked), and set up a killer croquet course in the front yard. If it got too dark before a game was finished, Dad would hang up spotlights from the front porch. This photo makes me miss those days.

My first car. It was already almost 10 years old when I got it, but I loved that damn car!

There’s this old Pizza Hut magnet sticking on my Grandma’s fridge that seems ancient to me. It’s got the old logo and everything. It’s got the classic setting of a basket full of plastic veggies and a fake looking pizza in front of it, and the whole thing wreaks of the the mid-to-late-90’s. Something about that thing, and all hokey 90’s ads for the matter, takes me back to my childhood, I guess ‘cause they were always on when I was watching TV Which, as a child, happened to be a lot XD

Whenever I see one of these I am suddenly 17 years old again and I can almost hear Buddy Holly blasting on the radio.
