Okay…the other day, a friend pointed out to me that it had been a WAY long time since I had blogged. Not that my blogs are anything profound, or even important, but she noticed… which made me feel happy! Ha ha! It doesn’t take much to give me a jolt of joy…and it did to know she noticed. 🙂
However, as you know, I’m a terrible blogger all the way around! My content is weird and random, and I sometimes tend to ramble on and on and on and on and on…and I’m not at all consistent.
But, I did come across something a few months back that made me smile, and that I instantly thought of sharing with you. As ever, it’s random, and pretty pointless, but it made me smile, so maybe it will give you a grin, too.
You probably know that I’m a photo fanatic! I won’t go into all the history and reasons as to why (the blog would be way too long!), but suffice it to say, that part of my photo fanaticism revolves around vintage photos, and has for all my life.
Therefore, you will not be surprised to find out, that I’m an avid collector of old/vintage photos…ESPECIALLY old wedding photos, old military photos, vintage sibling photos, etc. I have learned, along the way, to be VERY selective…otherwise I’d have to buy another house to store all my photos in.
Still, even though I am very selective about which photos I actually purchase, when I saw this snapshot…I HAD to have it! It’s not the usual kind of wedding photo I add to my collection, and even though the bride and groom are adorable and I LOVE their affectionate pose…it’s the photo bombers in the back that I fell in love with!
This photo looks to be circa mid-late 1930s, and I simply adore the display of happiness and fun by the bride and groom AND the photo bombers! The bride and groom and their romantic pose is actually very rare for this time period when, although smiles were finally incorporated in photos, a lot of touching wasn’t. So that made this photo special to me.
Then add those two crazy photo bombers…also appearing to be a couple…and I just smiled and smiled off and on for hours after seeing them. Keep in mind, that the actual photo is tiny…about 2 inches by 3 inches…so the wonder of this photo could easily have been missed. But not by yours truly…no sirree! I LOVE it! And I bought it! Yep…I spent a whole $1.50 on this sucker…because someone missed it’s true value…both emotionally AND monetarily as a collectible. Whew! Lucky for me, right?
Anyway, just another random blog that won’t do anything to change your life. But if you’re have a rough day today, hopefully this little treasure in my collection will make you grin a bit and remember the fun, photo-bombing or just-being-happy-and-silly times in your own life story. 🙂
