Lovely Couple

While going through some pictures the other day, I came across this photograph of a very lovely couple. I don’t know who they are (yet) but I’ll find out. My first guess is that it was taken in or around Vermont and I would think from the 1940s.

The soldier’s uniform is impeccably worn and he looks to be a captain in the U.S. Army (guessing by the bars).

Have a wonderful and peaceful day!

Great-Aunts, Vermont 1930s

Carol’s great-aunts on her mother’s side in a found photograph from the 1930s (we believe). I like this photograph because it’s rather well taken – not particularly well scanned, but for the time period, it’s a rather good picture.

I don’t know what format the camera was that took this but I enjoy the wider view given by the photographer’s perspective. The ladies are well centered (side to side and top to bottom) and in focus. The wider view allows the viewer a chance to take in the surroundings and appreciate the era in which it was taken.

The only post-processing was to take out the sepia tone and give it its true black and white tones.

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas!

All the best, Chris and Carol ^.^

We hope that 2018 can be a year for compromise and accords – not bombs and killings and polarization. As John and Yoko said, “Give peace a chance”.

Our little kitty…

Our little kitty, Sukoshi, passed away this morning. What a fun cat she was and it goes without saying that she will be missed –

Always the most difficult of our three cats to get a picture of – she was always on the go!

She joined our family as a kitten back in the summer of 2003 and was our daughter’s cat. Daughters grow up and out so it’s really the parents that take care of the kitty (it was always fun!).

So sad to see her go.

Peace little one…

Pirate de Cat

Our old dude hanging out with me (Chris) this afternoon while I was testing a new camera. Point a camera at him and he’s sure to look away.

Today in the garden.

He’s a sweetheart. AKA – Pirate, Andy Panda, Shamu, Pi-Pi and Old Dude. He’s about 16 years old give or take a year. He adopted us one day back in the summer of 2003.
