|Aren't they FUN!?!!?|
It wasn't a complete list and I left out a biggie...(on purpose)
I love them so much.
Snapshots are my favorite although sometimes you can find a very funny portrait.
|This guy is thinking about the wedding night...|
They are usually taken in fun...or while drunk.
Oh, the stories hiding in those tiny gems.
Which is why I love photos so much, they hint at a story.
Sometimes they inspire a character.
|Isn't this lady just the SWEETEST?|
What's going on in this photo?
How did that boy get a shiner?
What is that woman doing in that tree?
Why are those people so close to that bear?
|Nothing inspires a story like a three-year old having a tea party on the roof.|
|Is Great Aunt Helga evil or is little Suzy a tyrant?|
My collection of vintage photos must have the ability to reproduce because I certainly didn't buy all of those photos! (or maybe I did)
|These might be full of photos...maybe...|
But often I'll buy boxes of them.
When I get home, I set aside the ones I really, really like for myself.
|This is where I keep my very favorites...|
I have quite an interesting collection.
A HUGE COLLECTION. (translate: thousands of photos)
Many scenes in my novel are inspired by vintage photographs.
The expressions, the scenery, the simplicity of a time gone by...so much inspiration.
In my messy studio are thousands of stories just waiting to be written.
I'd better get busy!
