Memories & Photographs

From time to time, people of a “certain age” go through their libraries, collections, and other assorted stuff accumulated over the years.  We pretend we are organizing them!

The other day my wife found two old, worn, and weathered photographs in a book acquired several years ago at a library sale. We have no idea as to the identities of the subjects or where and when they were taken.

  • One obviously is of a couple on their wedding day most likely during World War II.
  • The other photo…children on a beach or shore.
  • Are the photos connected? Who were they?

 

Perhaps someone, somewhere, will recognize the images?? Will this challenge be solved by the application of the rules of Six Degrees of Separation?

At the moment I am thinking of a song by Jim Croce…

“Photographs and Memories”

Lyrics

Photographs and memories
Christmas cards you sent to me
All that I have are these
To remember you

Memories that come at night
Take me to another time
Back to a happier day
When I called you mine

But we sure had a good time
When we started way back when
Morning walks and bedroom talks
Oh, how I loved you then

Summer skies and lullabies
Nights we couldn’t say goodbye
And of all of the things that we knew
Not a dream survived

Photographs and memories
All the love you gave to me
Somehow it just can’t be true
That’s all I’ve left of you

But we sure had a good time
When we started way back when
Morning walks and bedroom talks
Oh, how I loved you then

Portrait Of A Photographer

Article about a long time photographer, Murray Rockowitz, in Northern California describing his history with film and evolution to digital and their relationship.

I have had the pleasure and privilege of attending several of his workshops and seminars in his studio, which is now closing. The article, of course has several of his prints featured in it.
