I’ve mentioned before that my mom’s dad built a cabin in the Uinta Mountains in the 1950s. He was a postal worker by trade, so it’s a bit clumsy, but after nearly 70 years, it’s still standing. When we go up for a weekend, there are a few things that are “must haves”: s’mores roasted in the fireplace, sugar wafer cookies, and breakfast toast cooked on the old wrought-iron griddle. This is seriously the best toast ever. I’ve tried making it at home. It doesn’t taste the same. Not even close. Years and years of seasoning have gone into that iron, and there’s nothing else like it. Anyone up for a nice mountain adventure?
IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF THINGS THAT SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU NOSTALGIC.
Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.
Here’s how it works:
- Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
- Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
- Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Oh the breakfast toast! I can smell it…. I can relate to your experience. Here’s mine – https://myheart2heart.blog/2020/08/20/chasing-butterflies/
It’s funny that taste and smell seem to conjure up memories in a much more intense way than sight ever could, isn’t it?
That is so true. Though looking at this photo makes me want the toast. 😉
I’ve never had toast made that way but it looks amazing. When I saw it in the Reader I thought it was French toast. 🙂
You butter the bread before putting it on the griddle and only cook the buttered side.
There are so many things that bring back wonderful memories. I chose one of my favorites.
Here is my entry for the week.
I had just the right picture! Thank you for your lovely subjects and challenges! My post will be up in the morning.
A look back at the days of simpler camera equipment:
We used to have a place in the mountains in South Africa. No electricity.. Just fire and gas..
We put in electricity in 1999, but the gas lamps all still work and the range is gas.
A good theme, and that last looks very tasty indeed.
I haven’t back far with my nostalgia, just to the construction of a bridge that I like. https://travelwithintent.com/2020/08/22/queensferry-crossing-another-guid-passage/
So many things make me nostalgic these days – it was hard to settle on what to do. Here’s my try taking a page from American history: https://maximizingluxurytravel.com/2020/08/23/a-photo-a-week-challenge-nostalgic/
