Today's photo features three children, and of course, not even a crumb of info about them. That little guy in the middle - is his sister holding him in place, those photos required the subject to remain still, motionless (and emotionless!). He just looks like he is watching the clock, waiting...waiting...waiting....to jump around and shake the wiggles out of himself!
When looking around for old photos, often I come across one that has a darling child, that is blurry. What could have been a wonderful photo is ruined by movement of the subject. (Who could sit still for 5+ minutes while a photo was processed? Not me!) The blurry photos were all kept though. Sometimes, that is the only photo they may ever have of a loved one. So blur or clear the photos were still precious.
Oh, on another note regarding old photos - I have quite a few old studio portraits of men that I have no need for, studio photos of men seem to be a popular 'filler' in lot sales of vintage photos. Anyway, if you are in need of these, drop me a line, I would be happy to send them to a good home.
