Thanks Raj. The site is looking and feeling the way we want it. It's starting to take off I think...though not on the scale of cute puppy sites but hey...how can you compete with cute puppies?
Glad to be able to creep you out on your first visit. [Image Can Not Be Found] [Image Can Not Be Found] There are definitely some odd old snapshots out there.
Check back too as the site is updated daily.
Will be checking in.
Does anyone else feel an erie (eery?)... well a creepy... well no not creepy exactly... I don't know how to describe it... but it's a specific sort of silence. Anyone know what I'm babbling about... anyone... anyone?
Perhaps like seeing ghosts or something?[Image Can Not Be Found][Image Can Not Be Found][Image Can Not Be Found]
STILL trying to download my on-line personality. … and looking at things from a funny angle …
As usual, a bit late. I am really intrigued by Hungry Maude.
Many of these pictures remind me of ones that my mother and father had in a box. They were of days past in their life in 20's and 30's and their parents and other people I couldn't identify.
And there were these mystery photographs of days at a lake and a very handsome man who was often in a picture with my Aunt Alice. I had never seen this man and he was never mentioned so I knew I probably shouldn't ask about him. When I finally asked who he was, there was a big silence. And it went on and on. And then my father said that he was Aunt Alice's first husband and he was an alcohlic and she divorced him. Everyone got even quieter after that. No one ever got divorced. But the flood gates were open. And most of us in the next generation got divorced. Even without being married to an alcoholic.
Keep the pictures coming, Scout. Kay
Imagine life with no hypothetical situations.
and late getting back to you too… Thanks for talking a look, kay.
Things have been slow with Hungry Maude as summer has hit but I'll be updating it at least once a week with new stuff.
I love pondering what is going on in some these old snapshots. There is so much narrative tucked away in what seems like an every day snapshot.
Even later response.
That is terrific Scout. Can't see any flaws, and I'm wired to find flaws. Spent a couple hours wandering about making narratives linking them together. Something I'm not wired for, which is proof the presentation works.
Only grump for me is it reminded me of the Polaroid collection crapping out into private hands which I'd just gotten over. Cutting apart the color shots to play with the emulsions set could achieve spectacular results. I was bad at it, but had my moments. Bought an old-fashioned paper cutter to get them opened as quickly as possible. (Also: those things are the sexiest art-nerd toy ever. Giant chopping blade, grid, what's not to love?)
grooowrrrr! [menace menace] rrrrowwwr!
Hey Finkbug! Holy shit. Long time man.
Thanks for looking. We went through a few formats and themes and settled on this ultra simple one.
What Polaroid collection are you talking about?
There are boxes of private letters and non-photo stuff sitting in a basement butso far it's just been pics. I like it simple actually.
Polaroid traded equipment for prints for decades. The bankruptcy dismemberment nears its end and all those prints recently went on the block. Adams, Close, Warhol, Maplethorpe, on and on, blown to the four corners of private collections.
Been a bit mopey about it.
But I love that site, and it's good to see you still plugging away. [Image Can Not Be Found]
