My parents; photo apparently taken in the 1950's. May their memory be a blessing.

Beautiful photo

Thanks. I think so too. It sat on their armoire for quite a few years and while I liked it well enough I never really looked at it that closely. Now that they're gone I find myself looking at it quite often and appreciating it a great deal.

Thank you for posting this picture here. It enriches my memories of them.

Thanks. Yeah. I now treasure it.

Oh, that's really nice. A lot of those studio photographs from that era are stereotyped out of reality, but the expressions of your parents are just wonderful.

P.

Thanks. Yeah, the photographer really did a nice job.

In the last day or two I realized that I am now older than they were when that photo was taken. A rather sobering realization.

They don't do this kind of beautiful photography anymore these days

If you look around hard enough you can still find people doing exquisite portrait photography, but you're right that this is a particularly nice example of a style that's linked to a time (and maybe even a place) that likely will never be again. Of course I'm biased, since it's of my parents, but still…

sorry for breaking in, just saw this picture and wanted to say hi.

Oh, not at all; not at all. You're quite welcome. "Hi" yourself. (Just out of curiosity, how did you stumble upon me/my post?) And speaking of beautiful photography… I haven't had a chance to look at all of yours yet, but what I've seen didn't suck are pretty darned good. Including your lovely icon shot here. I've now friended you—let's chat some more from time to time, eh?

Not entirely sure how I stumbled on your page ..

That's okay. I was just curious, and would have found it interesting had you remembered. In any case, I'm glad you did.

.. got annoying requests, so to speak, and didn't want to lend my personal photo's for that.

Yeah, I quite understand. I have taken more than a few nudes and most of my photos—whether of buildings, people (clothed or nude), nature, or what-have-you—have at least some component of eros, but I'd like to think that none of them stray into the prurient. I'd rather that nobody look at any of them merely as lewd displays so I haven't figured out where/how to display them (on line, that is. I've been sharing them in person with friends for years now). I reckon I'll figure out something before too much longer, though.

Added you back ... so you can view them if you want to :)

And just in time too. :) You're awesome. Thanks!
