If you look at the photograph carefully you'll see as it wanted to be seen, taken 30 years ago with a Mamiya Sekor SLR at this table. Unloading my pocket knife and wristwatch onto the table in front of a small framed clock got our two youngest interested. I asked them if they'd like to be included. They did, so we went outside and they posed as would like to appear in the photo.
They did, and we discussed where their images would go.
A truly memorable treasure.ReplyDelete
Most kind, dear Julia, part of kid-raising fun.Delete
That's a clever and unique photo. If only we could turn back the hands of time, and take with us the wisdom we've learned between there and here. I hope you and Norma and your family are doing well, Geo.ReplyDelete
O_Jenny, thanks. I'm glad we took photos and included kids in projects. It's the silly projects that are still the most enjoyable. Best wishes to you too!Delete
What a really cool idea! Love that!ReplyDelete
Thanks, kind Lady! You encourage me.Delete
Pretty profound. very good.ReplyDelete
Dear Susan, thanks. All my children are around middle age now, but the old fun of tabletop projects is still with us.Delete
I have no idea how you did that. You always were brilliant, clever, and sweet. Of that, I'm sure.ReplyDelete
Dear Robyn, thanks. That fun photo has been buried in an album many years. I set the objects on the table and asked kids how they'd like to pose if they were tiny --complied with ASA 400 Tri-X 35mm film. Got it processed and carefully cut out and braced their images (like paperdolls) to complete the tableau.ReplyDelete
