"I believe in the resonance and staying power of quiet photographs." -William Albert Allard
My Aunt Beth and her friend in rural Mississippi in the 1960s. These Kodachrome colors and memories never faded for me and my family.
But this photo is about more than Kodachrome and kids on summer vacation.
It evokes endless summer stories, made up of family fishing trips, creaky row boats, impromptu potlucks, bourbon sipping, fireflies glowing at dusk and swinging screen doors.
Wanita Lake and fishing club hold a special place in our family history. My grandfather was a founding member and all of us have revisited this same Southern spot for years.
I climbed into this same row boat, as a young girl, just as my Aunt Beth did.
Magical memories are often the simplest. That’s why I love this photograph. ~shared by @rachellacour
'The Kodatrope' by Lee Pivnik
The cage-like interactive sculpture “Kodatrope” by artist Lee Pivnik assaults its viewers’ senses by showcasing, all at once, hundreds of slides of photographs of strangers taken several decades ago. http://bit.ly/Vo5TIR

Fred Herzog’s work focuses primarily on “ordinary” people, the working class, and their connections to the city around them. He worked primarily with slide film (mostly Kodachrome), which limited his ability to exhibit, and also marginalized him somewhat as an artist in the 1950s and 60s when most work was in Black and White. However, he has been increasingly recognized in recent decades.
Love the colors in this pic from 1943.

I had a teacher who was really hot and looked a lot like Bruce Willis, he was instrumental in my proclaiming and eventual comfortability with my own sexuality and coming out. No, we never did anything sexual or even discussed mine, or even anyone else’s sexuality
I still love bald men especially the bigger, stronger, masculine ones with hairy bodies. Extra points if they have a daddy-ish authoritative job like officer, detective, or teacher. And another extra points if they’re intact with money to spoil you and take you wining and dining.
