Pink Saturday-Photographs...What they can tell you and what they may not tell you!

Pink Saturday-stop on over to Beverly our lovely hostess and check out all of the links. http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com//

Photographs...What they can tell you and what they may not tell you!  I was sorting through some recent pics I took and I was staring at them trying to decide if I accomplished what I was looking for or not and the longer I looked at them the more I thought.  Here are two different viewpoints to ponder.



1.  What this photograph I took can tell you about ME the photographer.  As I look at this photograph I see ME, I went to college for Fashion Merchandising {appreciation of the vintage photo}, I was a wedding/sports league/children's portrait  photographer {I love B&W photography and P. in general}, I've sold fabric on-line/long arm quilting as a P/T job {doll quilt BG}.... so right there are a few avocations I've done over the years.  I love COLOR, can you tell, I love pink {flowers in the vase, gardening, BG quiilt a little colorful},  pearls are one of my favorite pieces of jewelry {still life accent} and the bud vase was my mother's {my father would give her one each place they visited that was her gift, I never knew he was so romantic}.  Did you know when you looked at this photograph all of these details about ME?  Photographs can tell much about the photographer.

2.  What they may not tell you!  Looking at this antique vintage photo...leaves me with so many questions.  Who was this lady, what was her name {Lily, Violet, Rose?}, did she have a happy marriage or end in divorce, did she have children and grandchildren {how many}-{who didn't keep her wedding photo in the family}, did she work outside the home {if so what was her career}, what hobbies did she enjoy {did she quilt, embroider, bake?},what was her favorite color/flower, where did she live {in the city or country}, did she have a long life, was she happy, sick, what stesses did she have in her life, was she a Christian, did she volunteer, etc.  What dreams did she have, did she achieve many of them?  What was HER STORY?  What words of wisdom woud she offer me? 
Some Pink for pink saturday!




Happy Pink Saturday, have an awesome weekend, Hugs, Michelle

Behind every picture there is a story. Not as interesting as yours tho.

Your photos are wonderful. I especially like how you used the quilt as a backdrop for your vintage photo.
