on art . . . photos . . . and the reality of a visual life . . .
yesterday . . .
a question came up - concerning facebook photos . . .
and the replacement of my little yellow bread box photo
which I am now using for my Seabold Vintage Market facebook page.
As I was looking for a new photo . . .
I came across this one shown here on this post.
This particular photo made me stop and think
about what a photo truly means to each of us . . .
. . . is it what we think it is??
This photo here is of me when I was a young girl . . .
which is a bit funny to me . . .as it has always seemed much more intense and thought provoking
than I truly ever was!
If I didn't know this was me . . .
I would truly wonder about this photo . . .
who is that girl at that specific moment?
what was she thinking about?
is she happy? sad? and what was she thinking about?
and then as usual . . . I began to drift off to something else altogether . . .
how this image would make a great woodblock . . .
and how I could layer the colors in blues and greys . . .
I could mix it with my mother's and grandmother's woodblocks in a mixed media collage format
and then moments later - I thought . . .
I will blog about it . . . yea - that is what I will do . . . :)
photos . . . art . . . reality . . .
as we all know . . .
it is not always what it seems . . .
but it is part of life . . . and I am grateful for that!!! :)

oh - I almost forgot . . . the story behind the picture . . .
the photo was taken on an annual sunrise hike up the mountain that we did every spring . . . from the looks of it - I am not only tired but probably starving . . . and most likely a bit annoyed that I was having my picture taken . . . the photo next to it is in approximately the same location and taken about 10 years earlier with my mom and brothers . . .
honestly - we have tons of these . . . as well as all the dinner table photos . . .
and then there are the parades . . .
my dad loved taking pictures of parades and still does today . . .
well . . . I will stop now and save this all for another time . . . lol :)
. . . love to each of you!!
