Sepia Saturday is a great site, where bloggers use “old images as prompts for new reflections”. This week, its participants have the above image to use as a guide, as we are asked to look “not for what is there, but for what isn't” in old photos.
I didn’t have to look too far to find “what isn’t” in my photo collection. My Mom was famous in our family for taking photos of us kids with “parts” missing. Usually it was our faces and heads, but in this mid-1960s picture, she captured about three quarters of my sister, but less than half of me. On the other hand, she did manage to get a lot of wall into the photo. Way to go, Mom!
