During my blog hiatus my passion for collecting vintage imagery has not dwindled — actually I think my collecting might have escalated sort of like a placebo for not actually doing anything outside of work!
I uncovered this image at a local market a couple of months ago. It’s unusual to see a camera in shot used as a prop (and even more unusual to see a woman holding it!). It also has a stellar message on the back, one that immediately made me think of this poor neglected blog. I think it should read “Dear Blog” haha!
I can’t say what a “dirty dog” I feel whenever I think of you. I had the best intentions in the world of writing and have left my congratulations as late as this. To show there’s no animosity you can buy an expensive frame for this photo and hang it in the — I’ll leave that up to you where to hang it.
It’s a strange feeling being able to pinpoint the address this postcard was sent from (even stranger to stand in “street view”!)
