5-17-17


Back in June 2016, I started a new "series" of posts... if you will... 
 And so on Wednesdays; I've been posting an old photograph to inspire your creativity.
Write a poem!   
 Plot out a short story.
 Have inspiration for a piece of art or composition.... let your artistic soul shine.
--and occasionally I write my own sordid story or poem. 
 (you can click on the photos in this post to make it larger to see).

With Mother's Day being this past Sunday,
I thought this was a wonderful photograph to feature this week.

According to the inscription on the back, this is Marvin James at 3 months old (and his mother).
Today I went through a small box of photos, collected from various antique shops, thrift stores and the like over the years...
I am slowly (along with all the other ones I feature on Wednesdays) restoring them. I think they are awesome.
As a photographer, I don't understand how these treasures end up for sale.... but ... I guess that is the beauty,
because now we can make up elaborate histories, poems and such about them.

This one I will leave completely to you.
See you all tomorrow.
